I obtained my Ph.D. in May 2017 from the Evolution, Ecology, and Behavior graduate program at Indiana University - Bloomington.
My research interests include evolutionary developmental genetics, speciation, evolution of phenotypic novelty and diversity, and plant mating system evolution.
I completed my dissertation in the lab of Leonie Moyle (genetics of adaptation and speciation) at IU. Prior to starting graduate school, I was a research technician at the University of Maryland - College Park in the labs of Alexa Bely (evolution and development of regeneration in annelids) and Charles Fenster (evolution and adaptation in plants). I graduated from Amherst College in 2009 with B.A.'s in Biology (Honors) and Anthropology, and having gained research experience in the lab of Jill Miller and Rachel Levin (plant mating system evolution).
