I am a post-doctoral scientist interested in biogeography, island biology, macroecology, and plant-animal interactions.  My broad research interests led me to my current position at Colorado State University, investigating global patterns in human biogeography.

Prior to moving to Colorado, I completed PhD study at Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand.  Working alongside KC Burns , I investigated macroevolutionary changes of plants on islands (specifically focusing on size changes and evolutionary adaptations associated with herbivory).  I also have previous research experience in mistletoe macroecology and plant allometry.

When I am not working, I will most likely be fishing.
