I am a graduate student in the Department of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology at Harvard University where I study questions at the intersection of ecology, behaviour, and evolution in lizards.

I’m also keenly interested in the basic biology of understudied and underappreciated organisms, in communicating science to broad audiences, and in fostering inclusivity in academia.
