I am an evolutionary ecologist studying the drivers and consequences in intra-specific variation in animal functional traits. In particular, my research focuses on predicting changes in behavioral, morphological, and performance traits as a result of changes in ecological context. My field research in Southern Europe, the West Indies, East Africa, and North America makes use of direct manipulative studies and landscape-scale natural experiments. My work generates fundamental insights into eco-evolutionary dynamics and critical applied lessons for conservation in human-dominated landscapes. I am currently an NSF Postdoctoral Fellow at Harvard University with Dr. Jonathan Losos and at the Paris Natural History Museum working with Dr. Anthony Herrel. I finished my PhD in 2016 with Dr. Oswald Schmitz at Yale’s School of Forestry and Environmental Studies.
