I am a Ph.D. student in Organismic and Evolutionary Biology at Harvard and a member of the GenderSci Lab. My research is primarily concerned with developing methods and theory to investigate gene tree—species tree discordance, as well as applications of topological data analysis to genomics and introgression detection. I am also interested in how sex is conceptualized and how sex-related variables are analyzed, especially within the context of evolutionary biology.

I am advised by John Wakeley and Andrew Blumberg, and am supported by an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship. Prior to coming to Harvard I recieved my B.S. in mathematics and biology from UT Austin under Mark Kirkpatrick and David Hillis.
