ABOUT ME

Biography

My research interests lie at the intersection of plant eco-physiology, community ecology and ecosystem ecology. I am especially interested in using basic ecological tools, especially functional traits, to understand the effects of climate change on terrestrial biodiversity.

Education

  • PhD in Biological Sciences (Stanford, 2006)
  • MPhil Plant Sciences, (Cambridge, 2001)
  • BSci Natural Resources (Cornell, 2000)

RESEARCH

 

Research Goals

There are four major areas that I am currently working on:

  • Climate change effects on terrestrial vegetation
  • Plant functional variation effects on the carbon cycle
  • Assembly of plant communities, especially considering human impacts via climate change
  • Tempo and mode of evolution of plant traits

Supervision Opportunities/Areas

I am especially interested in finding students that are both into ecology and quantitative tools (esp. R). If you are into both of those things and looking for an research project, get in touch!
