Hello! Thanks for stopping by.

I am an ecologist and educator. 

My research focuses on how anthropogenic environmental change affects species interactions, and the consequences of these effects on populations and ecosystem function. I am particularly interested in how urbanization and the management of agricultural lands influence plant-pollinator interactions. Currently, I am an NSF postdoctoral fellow at the University of Massachusetts, working with Dr. Lynn Adler. You can read more about recent and ongoing work on my Research page, and check out published work on my Publications page. 

I became and ecologist thanks to the enthusiasm and passion of multiple mentors and role models, and I do my best to pay it forward by lighting the spark in others. I am dedicated to making the field of ecology more diverse, inclusive, and oriented towards justice, including through teaching and outreach.
