About Me

I am excited to announce in October 2016 I will be starting as an Assistant Professor in  the Department of Integrative Biology and AgBio Research at Michigan State University. Please email me if you’re interested in joining the lab as a graduate student, postdoctoral scholar, research technician, or undergraduate researcher. I’ll be advertising positions in the coming weeks. Check back soon!

Currenlty, I am a David H. Smith Conservation Research Fellow at Cornell University, working with Drs. Cliff Kraft and Matt Hare at Cornell and Nat Gillespie at the US Forest Service. I am also a Research Associate with the University of California, Davis, working with the Genomic Variation Lab.

My primary research interests are in the ecological and evolutionary processes that generate and maintain diversity within and among populations, with an emphasis on applying an understanding of these patterns and processes to problems in conservation and management.
