Intro_photoI am an evolutionary biologist interested in understanding the origins of phenotypic diversity. More specifically, I seek to understand how ecology and behavior influence the evolution of form and function, particularly as they pertain to the locomotor apparatus. I have traditionally used reptiles and amphibians for my study species because they are amenable to both laboratory and field studies and show a dramatic increase in size through ontogeny. I study variation at both the local, intraspecific level and more broadly between taxa using modern phylogenetic comparative methods. My approach is fundamentally integrative, seeking to elucidate evolutionary patterns and processes at multiple levels of biological organization using a suite of modern analytical tools.

I am currently a postdoctoral fellow in the lab of Jonathan Losos in the Museum of Comparative Zoology and the Department of Organismal and Evolutionary Biology at Harvard University.
