I received my B.S. in Biology from Yale College in 2010, and a M.S. in Fisheries from the University of Alaska Fairbanks in 2014. My research will involve examining phylogeographic patterns in marine fishes in the western Indian Ocean, spanning South Africa to Seychelles, and relating those patterns to other ocean systems. I'm interested in ecological, behavioral and oceanographic drivers of evolution, and translating my research into sustainable management practices of commercially and recreationally important marine fishes.
