About

I am an evolutionary biologist and PhD candidate in the Nachman Lab at University of California, Berkeley Department of Integrative Biology and Museum of Vertebrate Zoology.  Broad goals of my research are to understand the nature of species boundaries, characterize gene-flow between species, and investigate the adaptive value of introgressed genomic regions. My research currently focuses on the house mouse (Mus musculus domesticus) and close relatives in the genus Mus. Previous work has included phylogenetics of New Zealand cicadas, phylogeography of Brazilian cerrado herpetofauna, and phylogenomics of North American chorus frog genus Pseudacris.
