Research Interests (300 words)
My research focuses on plants as whole organisms. Currently, I am working on several projects including the intersection between leaf traits, phylogenetics, and climate change, maximizing carbon sequestration and riparian restoration, and the effects of biodiversity on asymbiotic nitrogen fixation under climate change. I have a strong focus on plant identification and taxonomy, environmental impacts on plants, and changes to plant communities. My skills include using dichotomous keys, GIS, and coding in R.
