I am a biodiversity scientist and botanist with a focus on ecology and evolution of plant reproduction. Much of my work has been in the plant family Solanaceae, including unusual breeding systems of the genus Solanum in northern Australia. I am also committed to public outreach through science communication. Activities on that front include producing/hosting the YouTube series "Plants are Cool, Too!" and blogging for the Huffington Post.
