About me

I am a postdoctoral researcher in the lab of Dr. Katie Lotterhos at Northeastern University’s Marine Science Center. We're working on verifying approaches aimed at detecting molecular signatures of adaptation.

I graduated with my Ph.D. from the lab of Dr. Floyd Reed at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa, with a specialization in Evolution, Ecology, and Conservation Biology. My dissertation work focused on gene and genome evolution in the pan-tropical sea urchin genus Tripneustes. My research interests generally relate to molecular evolutionary biology, especially in the context of marine ecology.
