I am currently a graduate student researcher at Boston University funded by a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship in Organismal Biology. My thesis work focuses on elucidating the evolution and mechanisms which underlie plastic traits in treefrogs throughout Central America. Specifically, I am studying how reproductive strategies, the environment, and development all affect embryo behavior and survival. I am interested in adaptive phenotypic plasticity, animal behavior, development, cue use, and predator-prey interactions.
