I am currently an assistant professor in the Department of Environmental Science, Policy, and Management at UC Berkeley. I completed my Ph.D. at UC Davis in 2010, an NSF Bioinformatics Postdoctoral Fellowship at Harvard University in 2012, and a Smithsonian Molecular Evolution Postdoctoral Fellowship at the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute in 2014.

I study the ways in which geographic and environmental variation shape patterns of genetic and morphological variation. My major research interests lie in three areas within this general framework: 1) landscape genetics, 2) ecological genomics, and 3) phenotypic evolution. I work primarily with poison-dart frogs (Dendrobatidae) in Panama and Costa Rica and Anolis lizards in the Greater Antilles, but I also maintain research programs on the California tiger salamander (Ambystoma californiense) and the western toad species complex (Bufo boreas, B. canorus, B. exsul) in North America.
