Welcome to my website! I am a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Michaletz Lab at the University of British Columbia. I completed my PhD in December 2019 in the Feeley Lab at University of Miami. My dissertation focused on understanding the ecophysiology of photosynthetic heat tolerances of tropical plants.

I also work with the Alliance for a Sustainable Amazon, a non-profit that aims to promote the conservation of natural resources in the Amazon through sustainable agriculture, biological research and monitoring, community engagement and education.
