Research Interests

Last summer, I participated in a project which monitored flower phenology and I absolutely loved it. This fascination with flowers and the impact of humans on ecosystems drew me to the Echinacea Project. My research interests fall within the realms of environmental science and conservation ecology. I’m interested in the impact of climate change, habitat loss, and invasive species on ecosystems as well as plant-pollinator relationships and any research applicable to conservation and restoration efforts.


I’m originally from Olathe, Kansas and am currently attending college in Minnesota. Recently, I’ve become interested in climate justice activism because I feel it is unjust that environmental degradation tends to impact the least privileged populations first and worst. In my spare time I like to hike, play violin, try new foods, and play soccer.
