About

Welcome to my research page! I am a second year PhD student in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology in the labs of Stephen Wright & John Stinchcombe at the University of Toronto. Broadly, I am interested in the evolutionary genomics and population biology of mating system, polyploidy, and adaptation. My Ph.D. thesis focuses on the genomics of adaptation to herbicide resistance, using the mustard family Brassicaceae as well as the more well-known agricultural pest, Amaranthus tuberculatus.

I completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Guelph in Biology. Under the supervision of Brian Husband, my undergraduate thesis project investigated the evolutionary dynamics of unreduced gamete production (i.e. gametes with the somatic chromosome number).
