I am an evolutionary ecologist broadly interested in plant reproductive processes. I study how plant mating systems evolve in response to ecological and genetic factors. My research uses field work, greenhouse experiments, and genetic analyses to examine how pollinator behavior and heritable floral traits interact to shape patterns of male and female fitness.

I am an assistant professor of biology at Western Connecticut State University. Students interested in working on projects related to plant biology, pollination ecology, or plant-animal interactions should contact me.
