I am a biologist working at the interface of evolutionary and community ecology. Much of my research is aimed at understanding the role of rapid evolutionary dynamics for structuring ecological communities. But my research program is otherwise diverse, focusing on plant-arthropod communities, extremophile Archaea, and dryland plants.

I am currently a Postdoc at the University of New Mexico, under advisement of Ken Whitney and Jenn Rudgers, where I work on dryland plants in the Sevilleta LTER to relate plant traits to biomass dynamics and climate sensitivity.
