About

I am a postdoctoral Fellow at the National Institute of Mathematical and Biological Synthesis (NIMBioS), University of Tennessee. Prior to this position, I was a postdoctoral associate with Carol C. Horvitz at the Institute of Theoretical and Mathematical Ecology, University of Miami. I received my Ph.D. in Ecology, Evolution and Conservation Biology from the University of Hawaii at Manoa, with Tamara Ticktin.
