I am a second year PhD student in the Population Biology graduate group studying population and community ecology. I am particularly interested in invasive species,  functional traits, and demographic studies.

I am a first year PhD student in the Population Biology graduate group primarily interested in investigating the effects of climate change on plant responses. Currently, I am working on a project exploring the impacts of snow melt on the phenology and population genetics of a native California wildflower, Streptanthus tortuosus, at Lassen Volcanic National Park. During my PhD, I aim to ask questions that lie at the interface of evolutionary biology, genetics, and ecology, and answer those questions using a combination of observational, genetic, and experimental techniques. Other research topics I may explore include studying the effects of climate change on plant-pollinator interactions, plant distributions, and landscape genetics and how those effects differ at varying spatial scales. I am also an avid science writer and communicator. See research updates on my blog here and my science writing portfolio here.
