I am  a Lecturer in the Dept. of Biology at Stanford University, where I teach a research-based ecology course and collaborate with the Fukami Lab. My primary expertise is in 
community ecology, macroecology and biogeography and my research seeks to understand how multi-species communities vary across space and the ways in which this variation arises from the confluence of ecological processes, geography, and scale. 

I am always interested in forming new research or education-related collaborations in the Bay Area and beyond, so I welcome you to explore this site and contact me about previous projects or new research ideas.


Check out my first ever Education poster from ESA: Lichen-associated micro-organisms as subjects of course-based undergraduate research in community ecology. View the poster here.

My post on my research on lichen functional traits in forest canopies is up on the Oikos blog: check it our here.
