Research Interests

As a plant ecologist, I am interested in understanding how anthropogenic climate change impacts plant communities. In the past, I investigated the vegetation composition of grazing lawns along an anthropogenic impact and grazing pressure gradient at Gorongosa National Park in Mozambique. I would like to continue focusing my research efforts on plant community composition and how temperature, precipitation, and photoperiod affect plant phenology.
