I am a plant ecologist interested in how climate change will affect plant communities, and plant-animal interactions. In particular, I study how changes in the timing of plant life cycles will alter interactions between species. As flowering time shifts in response to climate change, species will be impacted in a variety of ways. In order to successfully manage ecosystems in the future, it will be important to understand what role phenology plays in structuring plant communities.
I am currently a 3rd year PhD Candidate in the Ackerly lab at UC Berkeley.
Research Interests: Plant community ecology, species interactions, climate change, plant phenology, habitat restoration, conservation, citizen science.
