I am interested in mathematical ecology, and in particular connecting theoretical predictions with empirical data. My main goal is to understand how population dynamics change through time and space due to trophic interactions, differences in habitat, and weather and climate variability. I have worked with plants, insects, and birds, and enjoy learning new study systems.
I enjoy hiking, camping, kayaking, skiing, and anything outdoors, but I spend most of my free time running and travelling to races.
