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

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 cichlids of subtropical South America. I also study other groups, including marine fishes, anole lizards, and lungless salamanders.
