I am currently an NSF Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Wisconsin-Madison with Dr. Kate McCulloh. I am broadly interested in understanding the physiological ecology and evolution of vascular plants. In particular, I really dig ferns and cycads. In these groups, I am especially interested in the evolution of ecophysiological traits, how abiotic and biotic pressures drive adaptation, and how traits determine species' distributions. To address these questions, I mix fields of plant physiology, ecology, biogeography, and evolution. Check out my research page for more info and if you get excited, let's collaborate on something!
When I'm not the lab, the field, or my office, I like to do fun and challenging activities including rock climbing, running, weightlifting, drawing, and playing the piano.
