I have started as an Assistant Professor at the University of Pittsburgh. A new website is on its way.



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 Zürich 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.
