I am an ecologist and evolutionary biologist by training and am fascinated by the diversity of life and the processes that generate this diversity. In particular, my graduate research focused on the ecology and evolution of antibiotic diversity an ant-bacterial symbiosis. I love field work and getting to spend time making observations in nature.
My interests as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow include exploring how undergraduate students learn about ecology and evolution. My work in biology education research includes developing and assessing ways to help students understand that the process of science is iterative and complex. Furthermore, I am interested in the student learning process and how their identity as a scientist may influence their ability to achieve learning outcomes.
