I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biology at Texas A&M University. I was previously a Chicago Fellow at the University of Chicago working with Marcus Kronforst and a did a postdoc at the University of Minnesota with Suzanne McGaugh. I did my PhD at the University of Illinois with Becky Fuller.

My research program investigates local adaptation and speciation in fishes using behavioral and genomic approaches. I am particularly interested in the genetic basis of repeated evolution of the same phenotypic traits across lineages and how reproductive interactions between species influence the evolution of species discrimination and behavioral isolation. Please contact me if you are interested in joining the lab!
