I recently graduated with my PhD from the University of Michigan and I will be starting a postdoc in October 2021 at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History, the University of Pittsburgh, and Holden Arboretum as an NSF Research Fellow.

My research so far has centered around trying to understand how shifts in temperate tree seedling phenology in response to climate change will affect recruitment dynamics in the future. For my postdoc I will be working on research investigating how understory plant performance is affected by mycorrhizal associations and how those associations are affected by climate change and presence of allelopathic invasive species. Check out the research tab or reach out to me via email for more information.
