I am a graduate student from Vancouver currently doing my PhD at the University of Toronto, where I study the genomics of speciation in Amazonian birds. I am interested in population genomics, genome evolution, and the processes that form and maintain new species. I have also worked on the evolutionary history of the skuas and jaegers, and I did my undergrad on the population genetics of Pacific and Winter Wrens.

While my work now focuses on DNA sequences, I spend my free time exploring the forests Keats Island on the coast of British Columbia. My main focuses are birds, moss, moths, and jumping bristletails - or whichever is the next organism to cross my path.

My current project on iNat is to map out the distribution of Tansy Ragwort on Keats Island while participating in the removal of this invasive species from the island.
