About me

I’m interested in the ecological processes that maintain coexistence, and the impacts that global change is having on these processes.

I recently completed my PhD with Ben Gilbert at the University of Toronto. My PhD research was focused on the effects of climate change on species living in patchy habitats (metacommunities). This work demonstrated how local species interactions and dispersal shape ecological communities, and how warming affects coexistence by altering these two processes.

I’m excited to be starting a postdoc at Princeton with Jonathan Levine soon!
