About Me

I am an aspiring evolutionary biologist, broadly interested in mammal biodiversity, disease ecology, and conservation–particularly questions that lie at the intersection of public and planetary health. My research thus far has spanned herpetology and mammalogy; phylogenetics and morphometrics; and Madagascar and Southeast Asia, always relying heavily on natural history museum collections. I graduated from Yale University with a B.S. in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology in 2020.

In the fall of 2022, I’ll be starting my PhD in Biological Sciences at the University of Cambridge as a Gates Cambridge Scholar.
