Research Interests

My research interests include plant-insect interactions, the effects of fire on plant reproduction, flowering phenology and generally how human disturbance impacts prairie species. Currently, I am working on an experiment with Alex which investigates the effects of smoke on Echinacea flowering. I’m excited to gain more skills this summer in mentoring, data management and analysis, techniques like hand-crossing, and leading field crews!


I am from Minneapolis, MN and spent my college years in the great city of St. Peter, MN. I have been working with the Echinacea Project since last June as a research intern.

In my spare time I like to read lots of books, run long distances, play board games, embark on various crafting projects, listen to concerning amounts of Taylor Swift music, and spend as much time outside as I can.
