I am interested in the genetic basis of adaptation. I graduated from Williams College with a degree in math. Now a graduate student in Hopi Hoekstra's laboratory, I study the genetic basis of behavioral and adaptive evolution in the deer mouse. Using quantitative and population genetics, I seek to understand the types of changes in the genome that give rise to adaptation. Outside of research, I enjoy trail running, cross-country skiing, and ceramics.
