I am a Quantitative & Systems Biology Ph.D. candidate in the Blois Lab at the University of California, Merced. My research interests are primarily aimed at identifying underlying mechanisms of phenotypic evolution in reptiles, with a particular emphasis on color polymorphism.

Currently, my research is focused on the evolution of color and pattern differences within species that leads to reproductive isolation and speciation. Much of my work lies at the interface of ecology, evolution, behavior, phylogenetics, and biogeography.


Awarded a National Geographic Society Waitt Grant for speciation research on the Aegean Islands 
Awarded the School of Natural Sciences Dean's Distinguished Scholars Fellowship
