I am an evolutionary and developmental biologist. My research aims to explain how new body parts originate and how they diversify.

My interests are broad, and ongoing projects are focused the developmental and genetic basis of skeletal patterning in fins and limbs, the evolution of mammae, and the origin of blinking.

Currently, I am a Postdoctoral Fellow in Neil Shubin's lab in the Department of Organismal Biology and Anatomy at The University of Chicago.
