Botanist studying ecology & evolution
Big news! I've accepted an assistant professor position in the Biology Department at the University of Wisconsin - Eau Claire beginning Fall 2019, with a focus on evolutionary biology. Go Blugolds!
I am currently 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.
