Research Interests

My research focuses on ecological interactions and evolutionary histories that shape community and ecosystem responses to global change. Currently, I am examining how plant-soil interactions shape the response of plant communities to major disturbances such as the loss of foundation tree species to exotic pest invasion. With a background in both conservation and academic sciences, I strive to enhance networks and communication between the two by conducting quality research that offers practical knowledge and solutions to practitioners of science.
