    I'm a Ph.D. student in Ecology, Evolution, and Organismal Biology at Iowa State University. I study the molecular mechanisms of phenotypically plastic traits, using temperature dependent sex determination in turtles as a model system. I'm originally from Buffalo, New York. I have worked and studied in Geneseo, NY, Boston, MA, Wellington, NZ, and Ames, IA.
