I am an evolutionary ecologist that studies reciprocal interactions between evolution and ecology occurring over very rapid timescales (few weeks) and over macroevolutionary timescales (from thousands to millions of years).  My integrative research aims to understand the eco-evolutionary implications of adapting to both natural processes (e.g., species interactions) and human disturbances (e.g. growth under cultivation conditions) on communities of interacting species. 

I am currently a Postdoctoral Fellow in the ETH Z├╝rich Center for Adaptation to a Changing Environment (ACE) and a member of Jonathan Levine's Plant Ecology Group. I was previously a postdoc with Marc Johnson at the University of Toronto at Mississauga and I received my Ph. D. at the University of California Riverside mentored by David Reznick and J. Daniel Hare.

NEWS: I am excited to announced that starting January 2017 I will begin as an Assistant Professor at the University of Pittsburgh in the Department of Biological Sciences. I will be recruiting students and postdocs soon!
