Currently, I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Earley Lab at the University of Alabama. Our lab is extremely diverse in research topics yet unified by our shared focus on Kryptolebias marmoratus. K. marmoratus is a small hermaphroditic euryhaline fish inhabits the mangrove of Central America, the Caribbean, and Florida.
I have a wide array of research interests, including phylogeography, biogeography, population genetics/genomics, and environmental DNA. I strive for integrative research that pushes ecology and evolution research forward. I am interested in investigating the evolution and ecology of species while bridging the gap between research and real-world applications.
Aside from being a dedicated researcher, I am an ex-collegiate athlete who loves to spend time hiking, biking, and swimming.
