I’m a biologist interested in examining the intersections of ecological and evolutionary theories.  My background is in systematics, phylogenetics, and population genetics, and I combine these methods to study invasive species and to inform sustainable pest and weed control services.  Currently I am a Postdoctoral Researcher studying with Dr. Joseph Elkinton at the University of Massachusetts Amherst
