I joined the Martinson lab in August 2023 with a background in insect molecular phylogenetics, taxonomy and ecology. I am interested in the evolutionary arms race between parasitoid wasps and their hosts and the ecology and evolution of gall communities. I am also interested in insect-focused science communication.

Research Scientist I
I am working on the molecular mechanisms of species interactions, using reduced representation genomic data to understand the relationship of galling insects and their host plants. My background is in population genomics for conservation of endangered species and phylogenetics. I am interested in how genomics and transcriptomics can help us answer biological questions.
