I am currently a AAAS Science & Technology Policy Fellow hosted at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in the Office of Pesticide Programs Division of Biopesticides & Pollution Prevention.
I think of research and data as powerful tools to advance our knowledge on topics that can inform science policy and aide in applied conservation. I am passionate about environmental and agricultural policy--specifically those related to biodiversity, land use, and nature-based solutions.
My background is in ecology, evolution, and population genomics. Specifically, I have led and collaborated across research programs focused on determining the origins of variation, evolutionary predictability, and phenotype-genotype links in vertebrates (fish, lemurs).
