I'm a postdoctoral scientist at Washington State University working with Joanna Kelley. My research centers around understanding what lives where in cold places, how they've adapted to those environments, and their future given a rapidly warming climate and receding cryosphere.

This requires an integrative skill set, a bunch of talented collaborators, and field work in some spectacularly beautiful -- and spectacularly threatened -- locales.
