22 June 2021: I will be giving a (prerecorded) talk at this year's Ecological Society of America meeting. Find me August 2nd at 12pm Pacific for "The role of timing in the ecology of intraspecific trait variation in plants".
17 April 2020: Best news yet! The proposal I wrote with Will Wetzel for the NSF Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in Biology ("Rules of Life" competitive area) was recommended for funding! I will head to East Lansing in the fall to work on questions of milkweed, ontogeny, variability, climate, and much more.

22 October 2019: I am headed to Colorado State tomorrow for an invited seminar in the department of Bioagricultural Sciences and Pest Management. The topic will be, as always: what drives within-species variation in plant defense?
23 May 2019: My talk at the upcoming Ecological Society of America meeting is scheduled for COS 78: Herbivory, 9:50am Thursday 8/15. I will be speaking on competition-mediated costs of defense and their consequences for aspen populations.
6 March 2019: NSF Graduate Research Internship Program proposal funded! I will be off to Fort Collins, CO this summer to work with Ian Pearse at the USGS and Paul Ode at CSU on ontogeny of resistance in Lepidium draba.
