I am a NSERC Banting Postdoctoral Fellow working in Irby Lovette’s lab at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. I completed my PhD in Darren Irwin’s lab at the University of British Columbia. I am interested in evolutionary biology and molecular ecology, primarily in avian systems. Most of my research relies on combining genomic data with other phenotypic, behavioural and biogeographic information to make inferences about evolutionary processes. My field studies have mostly focused on studying contact zones and hybrids zones in wood warblers and wrens in western North America.
