I'm an integrative biologist studying how elevation affects the migration, physiology, and genomic divergence of birds. My research takes place in the U.S. and the South American Andes.

I am currently a NSF Postdoctoral Research Fellow and Rose Fellow, sponsored by Dr. Irby Lovette and Dr. Maren Vitousek at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and Cornell University Museum of Vertebrates. I completed my Ph.D. with Dr. Christopher Witt at the University of New Mexico and Museum of Southwestern Biology, where I am a Research Associate.
