As an undergraduate collaborator in Dr. Thomas Near's lab at Yale University, I investigated phylogenetic applications for studying speciation in clades of American freshwater fishes. My interest lies in the molecular mechanisms that drive lineage evolution, particular those that spur variation in the immune system.  

In the Littman Lab, I am interested in profiling the molecular components of a particular bacterium that lead to a specific immune response.
