I am a Ph.D. candidate about to start my third year in Britt Koskella’s lab at the University of California, Berkeley. I am using microbial communities to explore ecological and evolutionary processes such as host-pathogen coevolution and community assembly.

I received my bachelor’s degree from Duke University in 2018, where I completed three years of research in Jenny Tung’s lab. My work culminated in an honors thesis that earned the designation of High Distinction, the highest recognition given by the Department of Biology, as well as a first-author paper in Biology Letters.
