I'm a postdoctoral researcher in the Jones lab at the University of Notre Dame. Before this, I completed my Ph.D in Integrative Biology at UC Berkeley, my master's in Wildlife Ecology at the University of Florida, and my bachelor's  at the University of Michigan.

My research primarily concerns interactions among micro-organisms and their plant hosts. I use field and lab experiments to investigate how plant-associated microbes impact their host's performance and interactions with other community members. I also have interests in coexistence theory, experimental evolution, and statistics. My study systems of choice are aquatic and carnivorous plants, and environmental bacterial isolates.
