About me

I’m a PhD candidate in the Ecology and Evolutionary Biology department at the University of Toronto. I’m interested in the ecological processes that maintain coexistence, and the impacts that global change is having on these processes.

My current research in Ben Gilbert‘s lab is focused on the effects of climate change on species living in patchy habitats (metacommunities). I’m trying to understand how local species interactions and dispersal shape ecological communities, and how warming affects coexistence by altering these two processes.
