About Me

I’m a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center. As a member of the Marine Invasions Lab, I am based out of the Estuary and Ocean Science Center in Tiburon, CA.

Using field experiments and long-term data analyses, I seek to better understand biological invasions and marine invertebrate communities in a changing world.
