Who I am and what I do
I am an ecologist and evolutionary biologist. I use experiments, observations, and mathematical models to generate data that addresses compelling biological questions. I also develop analytical techniques which allow data to reveal answers to these questions.
I am an Assistant Professor in the Computer Science, Mathematics, and Environmental Science Department at American University of Paris. I have previously worked as a postdoctoral researcher at CEFE (Centre d’Ecologie fonctionelle et Evolutive, CNRS) in Montpellier, France, at KU Leuven in Leuven, Belgium and at The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and received my graduate training at The University of Texas at Austin. I am also an instructor of biology, with experience teaching courses for non-science majors as well as advanced undergraduate courses at The University of Texas at Austin and at St. Edward’s University in Austin, Texas.
