My research explores the evolution and ecology of polyploid plants in both natural populations and urban ecosystems, with an emphasis on interactions between whole-genome duplication (WGD), polyploidy, and reproductive strategies. I use a variety of quantitative approaches; combining field work, experiments, computational methods, and theoretical models.
I am currently a postdoc with Dr. Jannice Friedman at Queen’s University, where I am using Mimulus guttatus to study the effects of whole-genome duplication (WGD) on life history traits.
I completed my PhD with Dr. Brian Husband at the University of Guelph, and my MSc with Dr. Marcel Dorken at Trent University.
