Research Interests: 

I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at The University of Arizona. I am advised by Judith Bronstein. My research investigates the thermal ecology of mutualism an interaction among species from which all benefit. Currently, I am exploring how thermal ecology play a role in the interaction between the fishhook barrel cactus and its ant defenders at the Desert Laboratory on Tumamoc Hill in Tucson, Arizona.
