"There is no knowledge that is not power."

                                                               - Ralph Waldo Emerson

I'm a researcher and educator passionate about breaking down barriers between knowledge and people.  


I am currently a Post Doc heading education and outreach for the Phylotastic project in the O'Meara lab. The phylotastic project aims to make the vast amount of information contained in the biological tree of life accessible.  You can learn more about my role in the phylotastic project on the Phylotastic page of my website


If you are interested in my work on the evolutionary ecology of color, bat diets, and skink distributions find that on the on-going projects page.
