I am an evolutionary ecologist broadly interested in the maintenance and interactions of biological community associates, mostly using nematodes as a focal taxon. My research program seeks to utilize the fig-fig wasp mutualism, as well as the multitude of other organisms (notably Parasitodiplogaster nematodes) that interact with these partners as a model to better understand how communities are structured and are modulated over evolutionary timescales. I seek to combine “classical” fieldwork, genomics/phylogenomics, greenhouse manipulations, and laboratory-based experiments to develop a multifaceted research program capable of addressing interesting and lasting questions in the biological sciences.
