Welcome! I am a postdoc in James Harwood’s lab at the University of Kentucky in Lexington, the “Horse Capital of the World.” Previously, I lived in Fargo, North Dakota where I was a postdoc with Jason Harmon and Deirdre Prishmann-Voldseth at NDSU.

Professionally I am an ecologist, with particular interests in processes that occur at the edges of habitats or ecosystems, and a special eye for arthropods including spiders. In the summer of 2013 I finished my PhD at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in the Gratton Lab.

I am also one of the first crop of Science Policy Fellows with the Entomological Society of America.

Thanks for visiting!
