My research program integrates data from natural history, ecology, genomics, and paleontology—often through the application of novel computation tools—in order to understand the links between micro- and macroevolution.
Go Directly to Research for examples considering groups of birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians, fishes, and deep-sea invertebrates.
I am currently supported by an Eric and Wendy Schmidt AI in Science Postdoctoral Fellowship.
was a Life Sciences Fellow at the University of Michigan (2019-2023).
earned a PhD at Cornell University (2013-2019), working within Cornell’s Laboratory of Ornithology. As a graduate student, I investigated several dimensions of biodiversity, applying the tools of Systematic Biology, Population Genomics, and Paleontology.
