A bit about me…

I am an insect physiologist interested in all things metabolism and mitochondria, and seek to understand how these small, diverse arthropods function in the many environments they inhabit. I completed my PhD in the Sinclair Lab at the University of Western Ontario where I studied the overwintering physiology of the Colorado potato beetle. I am currently a Postdoctoral Scholar in the Williams lab at the University of California Berkeley where I am researching the evolutionary physiology of wing polymorphic crickets.

When I am not poking around the insides of insects, I am a heavy advocate for the creative communication of science. No science is good science unless it is communicated effectively, creatively, and in an exciting way!
