Research Assistant, Friedman Lab

BA Organismic and Evolutionary Biology, Harvard College
As a research assistant in the Friedman Lab, I study early evolutionary thought, with a focus on biologists (especially botanists) who made contributions to evolutionary theory, both prior to and concurrent with Charles Darwin. More broadly, I am interested in examining evolutionary theory through the lens of the history and philosophy of science, and learning how developments in these fields have influenced the interaction between science and religion in modern society. Before joining the Friedman lab, I worked as the lab manager of the Templer Forest Ecology and Biogeochemistry Lab at Boston University. I received my BA in Organismic and Evolutionary Biology, with a secondary field in English Literature, from Harvard College.
