I am a National Science Foundation Postdoctoral Fellow investigating changing biodiversity and body size distribution across spatial and temporal scales under environmental change scenarios, with sponsoring scientists Brian McGill and Nicholas Gotelli. I completed a previous postdoc with Catherine Graham at Stony Brook University, where we investigated the impacts of climate change on hummingbird migration, distribution, and diversity. My graduate work was with the Weecology Group at Utah State University, focused on facilitating collaborative research across scientific and academic boundaries.

I’m broadly interested in theoretical and experimental ecology across scales, particularly at the community – ecosystem interface. I’m also generally interested in unifying theories, community ecology, natural history, and publication practices.

In Fall 2017, I will be joining the faculty at Denison University as a new Assistant Professor of Data Analytics! I’m excited to be joining my passions of teaching solid reproducible research and data skills with ecological investigation. We’re building a new interdisciplinary department on the cutting edge of data training with applications for science, business, and the arts!
