I’m a PhD candidate in the lab of Volker Rudolf within the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Rice University.

The focus of my research is to determine how variation in phenological timing affects the annual cycles of community assembly that occur in seasonal habitats.

On this website, you’ll find information about my past and present academic work.
