I’m a third year PhD candidate in Integrative Biology and Ecology, Evolution, and Behavior at MSU. My interests are at the intersection of evolutionary biology, computer science, and applied mathematics.

I’m broadly interested in the evolution of genomes and the complexity of the genotype-phenotype mapping. I’m also interested in higher ed pedagogy and developing interdisciplinary undergraduate courses.
