Research Interests:
I am interested in how human influence is causing changes in biotic communities, including introduced species, habitat alteration, and climate change. My interests also include how the environmental gradients and natural selection interact, through a population genetics lens. My research focuses on invasive freshwater fish in the Hawai’ian archipelago.

Personal Interests:
I love outdoor recreation, including mountain biking, road biking, and anything on the water. I also enjoy learning about biodiversity, especially freshwater fish diversity, and the weird life history strategies associated with it.
