I'm an evolutionary and ecological geneticist studying the evolution of reproductive diversity and reproductive traits, primarily focusing on plants.
I'm a postdoc in the Ross-Ibarra Lab in the Department of Plant Sciences at UC Davis, where I'm studying recombination rate variation in maize and teosinte. I'm also affiliated with the University and Jepson Herbaria at UC Berkeley. Previously I worked with the Whiteman Lab, where I studied variation in reproductive traits of the invasive fruit fly Drosophila suzukii.
I completed my PhD in the Mitchell-Olds Lab at Duke University. My dissertation focused on the evolution and maintenance of asexual reproduction in natural populations of the mustard plant Boechera.
