I completed my Ph.D. in Biology at Indiana University in 2014. For my graduate research, I examined the evolutionary genetic and metabolic bases of thermal plasticity in Drosophila. See my web site for more information. In the Janzen Lab, after attending Turtle Camp 2014, I taught the upper-level undergraduate Evolutionary Genetics course at ISU in Fall 2014 and then explored unresolved aspects of the evolutionary genetics/genomics and physiology of temperature-dependent sex determination in turtles. I am now also working on issues related to the evolutionary genetics/genomics of aging in turtle and garter snake systems in collaboration with the Bronikowski lab at ISU.
