I’m interested in how the environment shapes biodiversity from species and population genetics perspectives. For my PhD in the Garroway lab at the University of Manitoba, I study how human activity and urbanization affect evolution in grey squirrels specifically, and also more generally in land-dwelling vertebrates. I make extensive use of open data to conduct broad scale synthetic analyses of geographic patterns in species and genetic diversity. My MSc in the Flatt group at the University of Lausanne focused on understanding whether a chromosomal inversion was facilitating local adaptation in the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster along a body size cline on the North American east coast.
