Biographical Sketch  

I completed my bachelor of arts in biology at Carleton College in 2011. Generally I am interested in studying the relationship between species diversity and molecular evolution. Currently I am studying the evolution of Monarch butterfly behavior, specifically the genetics of migration and how it relates to inter and intraspecies diversity. In 2015, I received a National Sciences Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship.
