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 a visiting assistant professor of biology at Beloit College teaching botany and conservation biology. Previously, I was a postdoc and lecturer at UW-Milwaukee, and before that I received my PhD in Plant Biology from University of Georgia.
