I am a Yale Institute for Biospheric Studies Postdoctoral Fellow under the guidance of Dr. Derek Briggs. The goal of my research is to explore how life evolved on our dynamic planet, with emphasis on understanding how biogeographical processes impact macroevolution. I am specifically interested in elucidating the controls on species’ responses to environmental change, and I do so by integrating biological data with information obtained from the fossil record. Although spiders are my true passion, I use mollusks for most of my macroecological and macroevolutionary research because of their exceptional fossil records.
