Current Graduate Students

I am a sixth-year graduate student interested in seed dispersal and how plants entice animals to consume their fruits.  I am currently working on describing spatial patterns in fruit colors, as well as investigating underlying evolutionary mechanisms behind these patterns. Broadly, I am interested in biogeography and trait evolution.

I am interested in alpine plant movements, specifically how their movements differ according to their microhabitat requirements during glacial and interglacial cycles and how that leads to speciation. I am looking at these questions in the Himalayan region. I am also interested in the biogeography and assemblage of Himalayan alpine flora.
