I joined the Chown Lab in March 2019 for my PhD, where I have been exploring broadscale patterns of speciation and trait evolution in honeyeaters.

Previously, I was based in the Poulin Lab at the University of Otago. I completed my Honours in 2017, where I compared phylogeographic patterns of shore crabs and their acanthocephalan parasites. After this, I worked as an Assistant Research Fellow on a project investigating the macroevolutionary dynamics of parasite diversification.
