I am currently a NSF Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of California Riverside working with Dan Koenig studying Evolutionary Genomics. Currently I am studying the genomic and phenotypic changes associated with local adaptation in barley.  I graduated with my Ph.D. from the University of Florida in August 2016, after spending 5 years in the Soltis lab studying flower Evo-Devo in the Polemoniaceae.
