Vision is the art of seeing what is invisible to others - Jonathan Swift
I am an NSF PRFB Fellow
in the lab of Dr. Felipe Barreto
at Oregon State University in the
Department of Integrative Biology
Generally, I'm interested in the ways selection shapes genetic variation across the genome, and the level of predictability associated with the underlying mechanisms to adaptation.
Specifically, I am interested in the organismal response and underlying adaptations to extreme environmental conditions, especially in low-oxygen situations, with a focus on marine/aquatic systems
(Copepods, Barnacles etc).
I am an integrative biologist who strives to connect evolution, genetics, and physiology, using both wet-lab and dry-lab tecnniques.
Part of my passion has been in scientific outreach and engagement, because science is for everyone! I am currently involved with Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (LSAMP) and Oregon Alliance for Minority Participation (OR-AMP) at OSU, and coordinating activities through the Integrative Biology Department and the Center for Genome Research Biocomputing (CBRG).
