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.
