am a biologist with broad interests in the ecology and
evolution of biodiversity.
I was born in Montreal and grew up in Virginia and North
before pursuing undergraduate work at the University of Arizona and
work at the University of Texas at Austin. Since 2009 I have
a postdoctoral fellow in the Michigan Society of Fellows, and a
(non-tenure track) Assistant Professor
here at the University of
Michigan. In the
Winter term 2010 I taught
Ecology (BIO 281) here at UM, and in Fall 2011 I taught the Senior
Capstone (BIO 410) and an Insect Ecology & Evolution graduate
I recently moved to Japan to lead the Biodiversity & Biocomplexity Unit at the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology. For more information on OIST, see recent articles in Nature (1, 2) and the Economist.
