I am a postdoctoral research fellow at the Smithsonian National Zoo & Conservation Biology Institute, advised by Drs. Robert Fleischer and Terry Chesser. I recently completed my PhD, advised by Dr. Lynn Adler, in the Organismic and Evolutionary Biology program at the University of Massachusetts Amherst.
I’m interested in the ecology and evolution of species interactions. My work is motivated by the critical need to conserve of biodiversity, with a focus on species that provide essential ecosystem services, such as pollinators and seed dispersers.
