I’m interested in the ecological and evolutionary processes that maintain biodiversity, and the effect that global change is having on these processes.
I’m currently a Banting and Biodiversity Postdoc at UBC, where I’m working with Sally Otto, Mary O’Connor and Rachel Germain to conduct experiments with flour beetles that investigate the effects of temperature on eco-evolutionary dynamics.
Before that I was a postdoc in Jonathan Levine‘s group at Princeton, where I used field experiments with fruit flies to understand species’ rapid evolutionary responses to competition and climate.
During my PhD with Ben Gilbert at the University of Toronto, I used the insects that specialize on milkweed plants to understand the effects of climate change on species that live in patchy habitats.
