Research on phylogenetics, phylogeography, morphology, and herpetology


I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Arizona, where I am conducting genomics and bioinformatics research as part of an NSF funded project with John Wiens.

I received my PhD in December of 2015 from the Museum of Vertebrate Zoology at the University of California, Berkeley, where I was a member of Jim McGuire’s Lab and the Integrative Biology program. I then became a postdoc with Matt Fujita at the University of Texas at Arlington, where I worked on an NSF funded project involving comparative phylogeography of West African reptiles and amphibians using genomic data.
