Research Interests

Broadly, I am interested in applied research related to wetland plant ecology, restoration ecology, carbon cycling, and the consequences of plant invasion. I am particularly interested in how different plant species influence ecosystem function and how we can manipulate species composition during restoration to promote diverse, functional communities
