BIOGRAPHY


I am a Plant Biologist and Theoretical Ecologist.  I am committed to addressing ecological problems through research and education.I am currently working on several projects involving how plants interact in extreme environments.  Mainly:

  1. How plants affect their local microclimate during extreme drought and heat events, and how this translates to positive effects on neighbors.
  2. How plants affect their local environment during floods.
  3. The role of biodiversity in mediating these interactions.  Higher diversity communities contain more species with more strategies for persisting in extreme environments – this often translates to stronger effects on the microclimate.
  4. The role of global climate change: Increased temperatures and the frequency of extreme droughts and floods may change the ways that plants interact with each other.
