I am interested in understanding how poison frogs and their microbial communities have adapted to the presence of toxins. In particular, I hope to understand how toxins impact the structure and function of the microbiome, how toxins affect frog immune system functioning, and to what extent these changes influence poison frog pathogen susceptibility. Prior to starting graduate school at Stanford, I spent three years working in health policy research and advocacy. In my spare time I enjoy hiking, boxing, and visiting national parks.
