I am a Ph.D Candidate in the Organismic and Evolutionary Biology Program at UMass Amherst and Harvard Forest. I was formally a Fulbright Fellow at the CSIRO Tropical Ecosystems Research Center in Darwin Australia. I will be defending my thesis in June entitled "Climatic Change impacts on the diversity and function of ants in eastern North America". My main research interest focuses on the understanding and mitigating the impacts of climate change on biodiversity at large spatial scales.
