Welcome to my web page! While I am generally curious about the natural world, most of my research involves plant-mediated multitrophic interactions, especially those concerning herbivorous insects and their natural enemies. Through a combination of field and laboratory experiments in conjunction with statistical modeling, I explore the causes and consequences of these interactions at varying scales, from individuals to communities. I have carried out such investigations across many habitats and countries, ranging from dry forest in Southern Mexico, to tundra in Norway. Much of my recent work has been funded by a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship, enabling me to self-direct my own research and explore the exciting field of chemical ecology.
In addition to research, I am passionate about inclusive, evidence-based student learning and research mentoring. Please check out my pages to learn more my work and interests.
