My research broadly spans microbiology, ecology, and evolutionary biology. I combine experiments, mathematical theory, and computational approaches to build and apply high-throughput tools to microbial systems, and to better understand how complexity shapes microbial ecology and evolution.

I am currently a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Yale University, in Dr. Paul Turner’s lab. I received my B.S. in Ecology, Evolution, and Behavior from the University of Minnesota – Twin Cities, where I completed a senior undergraduate thesis with Dr. Mike Travisano. I have also worked with Dr. Alvaro Sanchez, Dr. Satoshi Ishii, and Dr. Tom Platt.
