My PhD research focuses on testing and developing methods to identify and quantify the variation in phylogenomic data. In particular I am interested in applying these methods to herpetological non-model systems that lack genomic resources to better understand their biology and natural history.

I got my Bachelor’s Degree from University of California Davis in 2010. Before starting my PhD I worked as a tech in Brad Shaffer’s lab at UC Davis and UCLA. As a tech I developed genomic resources for turtles and salamanders. Additionally I helped with fieldwork, managing a salamander colony, and general lab maintenance. Collecting and developing large genomic datasets sparked my interest in the variation and diversity in information content in current genomic datasets.
