I am an evolutionary biologist interested in how evolutionary processes affect plant invasions. I am working towards my PhD at the University of Toronto. 

I completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Guelph.  There I became interested in pursuing graduate studies in evolutionary ecology, and went on to complete my Masters degree with John Stinchcombe at the University of Toronto. After my MSc I worked with Natalie Iwanycki at the Royal Botanical Gardens and Tim Dickinson at the Royal Ontario Museum. For my PhD research, I am focused on adaptation in the introduced plant species Arabidopsis thaliana and Ambrosia artemisiifolia
