Who I am
I am a postdoc in the Section of Botany at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History leveraging decades of herbarium data to document and understand trait changes in invasive species through space and time. This work is funded through an NSF Postdoctoral Fellowship in Biology.
Previously, I was a postdoc in the lab of Susan Kalisz at the University of Tennessee studying the effects of deer and plant invasions on the physiology and demography of forest understory species. I remain actively involved in this research.
I did my PhD on the ecophysiology of forest understory shrub invasions at Syracuse University, advised by Jason Fridley.
