I am a recent graduate in Genetics from the Ecology, Evolution and Organismal Biology Department at Iowa State University. I was coadvised by Drs. Anne Bronikowski and Jo Anne Powell-Coffman.
My area of research includes Ecological and Functional Genomics, and Evolutionary Systems Biology. I have worked on a variety of projects with research teams both within the United States and internationally. My research integrates environmental variation, molecular networks, and life history theory to understand the molecular basis for how animals adapt to their environment within a lifetime (acute response and acclimation), and across generations (evolutionary adaptation). Please see my research page for more information.
