I am an evolutionary ecologist broadly interested in animal behavior, sexual selection, learning, and color polymorphism. I got my PhD in the Richards-Zawacki lab at University of Pittsburgh. My PhD dissertation focuses on sexual selection and phenotypic divergence in polymorphic strawberry poison dart frog (Oophaga pumilio). I am currently a postdoc at the Living Earth Collaborative at Washington University in St. Louis, where I study the role of behavioral plasticity and adaptive learning in mediating rapid evolution using Trinidadian guppies (Poecilia reticulata).
