Postdoctoral Fellow, Smithsonian Environmental Research Center
I am a community ecologist studying the impact of the environment on species interactions in nature. I'm especially interested in the ecology and evolution of disease and immune systems. My PhD research at Cornell University focused on co-infection and environmental determinants of disease in corals. Currently, I am working on health and disease in Chesapeake Bay oysters as a postdoctoral fellow with Dr. Matthew Ogburn at the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center.

In addition to my work on corals, I've also worked on eco-immunology and disease susceptibility in lobsters, cattle, sea stars and eelgrass. I'm interested in understanding disease dynamics in many different systems!
