I am a quantitative ecologist, conservation biologist, and data scientist working with insects to understand how global change is impacting biodiversity. I work mostly by doing historical reconstructions of past ecologies and drawing from techniques in Bayesian inference, multilevel modeling, and artificial intelligence.

I am currently a David H. Smith Conservation Research Fellow at the University of Southern California in the Ecological Data Science Lab (PI: Melissa Guzman). Previously, I obtained my Ph.D. from the Ries Lab of Butterfly Informatics at Georgetown University (PI: Leslie Ries) as a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellow; was a Fulbrighter at the Laboratory for Integrative Biodiversity Research at the Finnish Museum of Natural History (PI: Pedro Cardoso); and obtained by B.S. in Environmental Science from Drexel University (PI: Jon Gelhaus) - close to my hometown in Pennsylvania.
