Hello! I am an evolutionary biologist working on marine invertebrates. In my research, I strive to uncover how evolution produces complex functions and characters that integrate features at multiple levels of biological organization (genes, cell types, tissues, etc). I am particularly interested in nudibranchs, a group of shell-less gastropods, and their ability to steal stinging organelles from their cnidarian prey (things like hydroids and anemones). I also frequently participate in various service and outreach activities with local schools and the general public, and I am a member of the queer scientific community. As a scientist, one of my priorities is to make the scientific process, and outputs of that process, more equitable and accessible. This is our responsibility.
