I am an NSF postdoc based at the University of Oxford. My research broadly focuses on developing mathematical theory to investigate how natural populations can avoid extinction due to environmental change. I completed my PhD in the Vasseur lab at Yale University developing eco-evolutionary models to investigate the role of environmental change in extinction dynamics at multiple scales, from individuals to communities. As a postdoctoral fellow in the SalGo team, I combine experimental and theoretical work to assess how populations respond to temperature change using a fruit fly model system.
