Research interests: Freshwater fishes, feeding ecology, functional morphology, key innovations, functional trade-offs, macroevolution

I'm a Postdoctoral Associate in the Muñoz Lab in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Yale University. I'm broadly interested in evolutionary ecology. I mostly study the functional morphology and mechanical properties of the jaws (oral and pharyngeal jaws) in freshwater fishes, particularly in minnows of the Southern Appalachian mountains and surrounding foothills and cichlids of subtropical South America. I also study other groups, including marine fishes, anole lizards, and woodland salamanders.
