Botanist studying ecology & evolution
I am currently an assistant professor in Biology at the University of Wisconsin - Eau Claire as of Fall 2019! Go Blugolds!
NEW I'm (very briefly) quoted in this Quanta Magazine article on hybridization!
I did a postdoctoral fellow in Dr. Ken Whitney's Lab at the Universty of New Mexico studying adaptive evolution and hybridization. I completed my Ph.D. in Dr. Kent Holsinger's lab at the University of Connecticut, working as part of an NSF Dimensions of Biodiversity project investigating plant diversity in the Cape Floristic Region of South Africa. I consider myself to be a botanist, an evolutionary ecologist, a teacher, a Bayesian journey(wo)man, and an ultimate frisbee player/coach.
