I am currently employed as a biologist doing stream ecology work for the state of Maine. Previously I was a postdoctoral researcher in the Uricchio lab at Tufts University. I did my PhD in Ecology at UC Davis, in the Karban and Holyoak labs, my M.S. in the Elkinton lab at University of Massachusetts Amherst, and a Fulbright fellowship with Birchmoth at University of Tromsø and the Norwegian Institute for Nature Research.

I’m interested broadly in insect population & community ecology, especially in the context of climate change. I also have an interest in the ecology and biological control of invasive insects.
