I joined the Kawahara Lab in 2017 as a non-tenured UF faculty assistant scientist. My day to day work is wonderfully diverse from coordination, administration, and general problem solving to molecular lab work and bioinformatics.

My primary research interest is intra-species variation and the forces that drive and maintain it. In the Kawahara lab I plan to combine this interest with new gene editing technologies to  investigate the origins and diversity of predator-prey relationships in butterflies and moths.
