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

I am currently a Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Connecticut, under advisement of Mark Urban, where I build aquatic microcosms with both Daphnia zooplankton and Haloferax Archaea to address questions about the role of evolution in community assembly.
