About me

I'm an evolutionary biologist interested in how adaptive traits originate and are maintained. In my current position as a third year PhD candidate in the Schumer Lab at Stanford University, I study evolutionary genomics, focusing on color polymorphisms in swordtail fishes. I graduated from Carleton College in 2019 with a BA in Biology, focusing in evolutionary ecology. I was then a post-bac researcher in the Blackman Lab at UC Berkeley where I studied genetics of monkeyflower adaptation and sunflower domestication. In 2022, I did a 6-month Fulbright Scholarship in Australia to develop genomic resources for 2 extinct-in-the-wild reptile species. Outside of science, I run for Peninsula Distance Club and enjoy taking pictures of fish, flowers, and lizards.
