I joined the Clayton-Bush lab in the fall of 2017 after receiving my B.S in Evolution and Ecology from the Ohio State University. At Ohio State I researched adaptive radiation and hybridization in the plant genus Penstemon. Now at Utah I am broadly interested in coevolution and I am working with the pigeon and louse host parasite system.

Outside of research I enjoy skiing, hiking, reading, and hanging out with my cat.
