I am a postdoctoral scientist at UC Santa Cruz based at the Southwest Fisheries Science Center. Formerly I was a James S. McDonnell Fellow in the department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Princeton University. I am interested in understanding why organisms move in the ways that they do. I use experiments, mathematics, and high-performance computational models to understand the rules organisms use to make movement decisions, and how movement influences the rates of ecological interactions and the dynamics of ecosystems. See my research pages for more information.
