I am an evolutionary biologist broadly interested in the processes generating and maintaining biodiversity. Specifically, I am most interested in the mechanisms underlying adaptation in natural populations of vertebrate species. However, I also maintain interests in genomics, where I am most interested in the the evolution of different genomic features and how they ultimately contribute to organism phenotypes and to overall biodiversity. I approach most of my questions using modern genomics techniques, but incorporate knowledge and data from other fields of biology as well. I obtained my Ph.D. in Dr. Todd Castoe’s lab at the University of Texas, Arlington, where I studied rapid adaptation in snake populations. My work in Dr. Scott Edwards' lab will leverage a group of Australian lizards with extreme diversity in limb morphologies to understand the genomic and molecular mechanisms controlling limb development.
