I’m an evolutionary biologist interested in understanding adaptation across timescales of environmental change. Currently, I’m interested in Amanda_passionflowerdetermining how urbanization and historical climate differences have influenced phenotypic and genetic diversity across populations of common ragweed, Ambrosia artemisiifolia.

I’m a PhD candidate with David Moeller and Peter Tiffin in the Ecology, Evolution and Behavior graduate program at the University of Minnesota. I previously completed my MSc at the University of Toronto with John Stinchcombe.
