I am a graduate student in Ecology, Evolution, and Behaviour at the University of Texas at Austin. I work with Dr. Lauren Ancel Meyers and Dr. Mark Kirkpatrick. My research questions fall under the headings of molecular and theoretical population genetics and mathematical epidemiology. Currently, I am focused on three lines of investigation: Optimizing Provider Recruitment for Public Health Surveillance Networks, Polyploidy and Diversification in Angiosperms, and Sex Chromosome Evolution in Xiphophorus. I am also broadly interested in statistical modeling and as a result have worked on a number of exciting projects including: heritable, epigenetic modifications in rats, models of spatiotemporal variation in phenology, and estimating epidemiological parameters early in an outbreak (2009 H1N1). I plan to complete my dissertation research in spring 2013 and hope to begin postdoctoral work in late-summer or early fall 2013.
