|Title||Post-Doctoral Research Associate|
I'm an ecologist and conservation biologist interested in species interactions, especially those involving insects and plants. So far, I have worked on basic and applied questions related to the ecology of early-instar caterpillars, the role of plant chemistry in trophic interactions, and the ecology of hemiparasitic plants.
I did my PhD, and a short postdoc, at the University of Washington School of Environmental and Forest Sciences in Seattle. I completed an M.S. at the University of Michigan School of Natural Resources and Environment, and B.S. in biology at Calvin College.
