Research Interests

I am interested in how plant communities are responding to global change, and how these responses are affecting the composition and function of North American ecosystems. My past work has focused on the reproductive ecology of woodland sedges, with an emphasis on native plant production and ecological restoration.  My current research interest is in plant phenology, with a particular focus on expanding phenology research to include a greater diversity of plant taxa, and investigating how phenological characteristics covary with other life history traits.
