I am a broadly trained field and bench organismal biologist. My research utilizes parasitic helminthes as a tool to study evolutionary and ecological processes; particularly as they related to diadromous fishes. I am interested in questions related to biodiversity, food-web patterns, fisheries and movement ecology, and host-parasite coevolution.
I also love brewing and talking about beer!
