I am currently a postdoc at the Center for Macroecology, Evolution, and Climate at the University of Copenhagen, advised by Carsten Rahbek.
I am an evolutionary macroecologist with a broad background in biogeography, phylogenetics, and climate change science. My research focuses on how macroevolutionary and macroecological processes work together to generate broad-scale biodiversity patterns. In service of this work, I assemble large datasets from natural history collections and the observations of citizen scientists. I am also developing new tools to better document the process of generating geographic datasets, in order facilitate repeatable, transparent science. While fishes are my primary interest, I have also worked with butterflies, birds and plants to understand the ubiquity of biogeographic patterns.
When I'm not in front of my computer, you might find me out hiking or biking with a pair of binoculars and a camera, at the farmer's market looking for novel local produce, in the kitchen fermenting something, or on the balcony with a book.
