Enjoying the view after hiking the Glacier Point trail in Yosemite.

 

I am currently a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Queensland where I am working with Margie Mayfield to understand how dormancy contributes to coexistence. Before moving to Australia, I worked at the University of California San Diego with Jonathan Shurin where I tested how trophic interactions mediate the assembly of novel communities. I  completed my PhD work on community dynamics in zooplankton under the supervision of  Ben Gilbert in the Department of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology at the University of Toronto. Prior to my PhD, I completed a masters degree at the University of Guelph with Andrew MacDougall, where I studied the population ecology of a mixed mating plant, investigating how climate change impacts the amount of selfing seeds produced.
