I’m a behavioral and evolutionary ecologist interested in social and socioecological interactions among individuals, and the impact of these interactions for evolution and for human understandings of nature. I use field-based techniques, close reading and conceptual inquiry, and mathematical modeling approaches to tackle specific questions tailored to different organisms’ unique natural histories.

I’m an evolutionary ecologist interested in nesting behavior, maternal effects, and developmental plasticity. The goal of my research is to understand how complex environmental factors contribute to phenotypic variation, particularly in reptile systems. You can read more about my work on my website.
