I'm a post-doctoral researcher in UC San Diego's Biology Department (Ecology, Behavior & Evolution), working with Dr. Diana Rennison.

My research program examines the maintenance and origins of biodiversity, across vertebrate systems. To address this, I leverage my broad training in both biological anthropology and evolutionary biology. As such, my research projects span primates & threespine sticklebacks.


These projects broadly fall into:

  1. the genomics of adaptation,

  2. biology of coloration, &

  3. population genomics.
