I am a botanist, artist, and evolutionary ecologist.  

I am interested in how plant morphology and anatomy mediate interactions with other organisms. If a plant has an unusual structure or shape, I want to know why!

I am currently a PhD student in the Weber Lab at the University of Michigan. We study the evolution and ecology of plant-arthropod interactions. See the research tab for more on my past and current projects. 

In addition to research, I enjoy sharing my love of plant diversity through art. I mainly work in watercolor, pen, and colored pencil. See the art tab for examples of my work.
