I am a climate change plant ecologist working towards a better and more mechanistic understanding of how temperate forests are responding to anthropogenic change. I am particularly interested in how plant phenology is shifting in response to climate change and how these shifts affect plant performance and species interactions. Other research topics include plant invasions, plant-mycorrhizal interactions, herbarium science, and more.
I am currently located in Pittsburgh working as an NSF postdoc fellow. I primarily work with Mason Heberling at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History, Sara Kuebbing at Yale University, David Burke at Holden Arboretum, and Tia-Lynn Ashman at the University of Pittsburgh. I also hold research fellowships at the Center for Tree Research at Morton Arboretum (working with Christy Rollinson) and the University of Tennessee Herbarium (working with Laura Russo).
