In Fall 2018 I joined the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Michigan as a Michigan Fellow.

I study how interactions between organisms and their environment affect biodiversity. This question has two components: 1) historical evolutionary processes that have produced the tree of life and 2) current ecological processes that affect how biotic lineages respond to environmental pressures. I am specifically interested in montane systems where species turnover is accompanied by dramatic environmental gradients.
