My research addresses how flows of energy and materials at the level of the individual cascade up to shape populations over gradients of temperature and resource supply. I combine theory, experiments and synthesis to study how temperature-dependent metabolism mediates population and community dynamics in aquatic ecosystems.

I’m currently a Nereus Postdoctoral Fellow working in the Narwani Lab at Eawag (Swiss Federal Institute of Aquatic Science and Technology) . I recently completed my PhD in the O’Connor Lab at the Biodiversity Research Centre at UBC.


May 2019: New paper this week! “Species interactions mediate thermal evolution”, work with Zander Chila (wundergrad, now Masters’ student at UVic) and Michelle Tseng.

April 2019: Just got back from an awesome working group week at the Gault Nature Reserve in Quebec — synthesizing thermal limit data and maple syrup tasting galore!
