I am a climate change plant ecologist working towards a 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 ecosystem services.
I am currently in Pittsburgh as an NSF postdoc fellow. I 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 hold visiting research fellowships at the Center for Tree Research at Morton Arboretum and the University of Tennessee Herbarium.
