I am a PhD student in Ecology & Evolutionary Biology at Cornell University. I use mathematical models to study ecological and evolutionary processes in fresh waters, with an eye towards practical management applications. Active research projects include (1) developing methods to translate eDNA data into species distributions, and (2) modeling demography and local adaptation on complex dispersal networks. I strive to create a healthy interplay between theoretical reverie and empirical grounding. I am advised by Stephen Ellner and also work with Pete McIntyre, David Lodge, and Alex Flecker.
