Tyson Postdoctoral Fellow
My main research interests are directed towards understanding the influence of species interactions, especially plant-herbivore and plant-soil feedbacks, as well as biological invasions on the relationship between biodiversity and ecosystem functioning.
PhD Student - Washington University
I am a second-year PhD student in the Evolution, Ecology, and Population Biology Program, and am interested in plant-soil interactions and restoration ecology.
PhD Candidate - Washington University
I am broadly interested in methods for quantifying and reducing the risk of extinction for rare plant species. For example, I'm interested in how we can better identify species at-risk due to climate change, and how we can use habitat management techniques to mitigate that risk. I also examine how we can better translate scientific knowledge into actionable conservation techniques for practitioners in the field.
I am studying Sustainability Studies at Washington University College. I am primarily interested in restoration ecology with the goal of maintaining native biodiversity and ecosystem functioning to secure a sustainable delivery of ecosystem services such as food production and the provision of water.
