I'm a botanist and plant ecologist studying Neotropical trees. I'm especially interested in their ecology, biogeography, phenology, and reproduction.

I'm mainly knowledgable about Central and South American angiosperms, especially in Panama, Costa Rica, and the Western Amazon basin. More recently, I'm familiarizing myself with the flora of South Florida, a fascinating mix of tropical and temperate taxa.

Currently a PhD student in the Feeley Lab at the University of Miami. https://www.junglebiology.org/
