I will be starting a position as an assistant professor at the University of California, Irvine in the department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology in July 2019.
I am currently a UC President’s Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of California, Santa Cruz studying the community- and ecosystem-level impacts of thermal adaptation in the lab of Eric Palkovacs.
I completed my PhD at the University of California, San Diego working in the laboratory of Jonathan Shurin. This work was focused on the ecological and evolutionary effects of temperature and predation on aquatic communities in the Sierra Nevada. Before that, I completed my MSc in Shelley Arnott's lab at Queen's University, Canada studying the effect of dispersal on community recovery from disturbance.
I am passionate about promoting diversity in STEM in many different ways. I am an advocate for women, LGBTQ and people with racialized identities in science. I seek out collaborators across many traditional disciplinary boundaries and have active collaborations with social scientists, anthropologists and journalists.
