I’m a biological anthropologist interested in how microbes can help us understand human evolution, history, and diversity. My research is focused on the ecological role of microbial eukaryotes and host-associated worms in diverse species. In addition, I am interested in understanding human-associated microbial diversity in the past by analyzing preserved paleofeces and dental calculus from archaeological collections. Python programmer and mechanical keyboard enthusiast. Currently a postdoctoral research associate at the University of North Texas in Fort Worth, TX, USA.
