Assisstant Scientist in Gainesville, Florida
As an assistant scientist in the Kawahara Lab, I serve as jack-of-all-trades studying the ecology and evolution of moths and butterflies at the University of Florida Museum of Natural History and McGuire Center for Lepidoptera and Biodiversity. My research is driven by a desire to use emerging molecular tools (aka cool genetics stuff) to uncover the mysteries of species that are ecologically and economically important and communicate those mysteries to the public.
In 2017, I finished by PhD working in the Hulcr Forest Entomology Labat UF. Before coming to UF I studied fisheries genetics in the Seeb and Roberts labs at the UW School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences.
