I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology. I work with the Amboseli Baboon Research Project to study the ecology and evolution of the gut microbiome.

I completed my PhD in 2023 at the University of California, Berkeley, advised by Britt Koskella. My research focused on predicting ecological and evolutionary processes in the plant microbiome, especially uncovering when and how these processes depend on history.
