Until recently, I was a graduate student at the University of Florida earning my MS studying the local dispersal behavior of an invasive species of thrips, Scirtothrips dorsalis. I am currently employed by the Department of Agriculture for the state of Florida as a bughunter, scouting for novel invasive pests of agricultural and environmental significance. My natural research inclinations lean towards comparative phylogenomics and paleontology. I'm a fan of evolution as a process, and would be happy to study it as a professional.
