I am a graduate student from Vancouver currently doing my PhD at the University of Toronto, where I study the genomics of speciation in Amazonian birds. I am interested in population genetics, genome evolution, and the processes that form and maintain new species. Right now I am sequencing the whole genomes of a family of birds to assess phylogenetic relationships and quantify their rates of hybridization. I am also examining the evolution of a hybrid bird species using population genomic data.

While my work now focuses on DNA sequences, I spend my free time exploring the forests Keats Island on the coast of British Columbia. My main focuses are birds, moss, moths, and jumping bristletails - or whichever is the next organism to cross my path.
