I am a botanist, artist, and evolutionary ecologist.  

I study how morphology and anatomy influence interactions between plants and other organisms. I am constantly astonished by the sheer variety of life on earth (!), so I study how it arose and is maintained. 

I am currently a PhD student in the Weber Lab at the University of Michigan. Our lab focuses on 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.
