About Me

I’m a Ph.D. candidate at University of California Davis in the Graduate Group in Ecology. I work at the Bodega Marine Laboratory and am a Short-Term Fellow at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute.

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