I am exploring this question as a PhD student at the University of Toronto Mississauga. Specifically, I’m investigating how urbanization influences gene flow and reproductive success in common milkweed (Asclepias syriaca) dispersed throughout the Greater Toronto Area. My advisors are Drs. Marc Johnson and Helene Wagner.
Before graduate school, I earned my B.A. in Biology with a Certificate in Integrative Genomics Sciences from Wesleyan University. After completing my B.A., I spent two years working at an ecological restoration firm.
