Welcome to my research website!

I am a PhD candidate in Marc Johnson’s EvoEco lab at the University of Toronto Mississauga. I use plants and soil ecosystems to understand how evolutionary and ecological processes interact across short and long timescales.

I study how plants alter the living and non-living components to soil ecosystems and how these alterations can feedback to influence plants. I use a combination of molecular, experimental, and computational tools from ecology, evolutionary biology, and microbiology.
