I am an NSF postdoc fellow working 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.

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.
