Research Interests

I am interested in processes that impact mortality in plant populations, like woody encroachment. I also get to help manage our demographic database for Echinacea, and I’ve really enjoyed gaining skills in this area. 


I am from Milwaukee Wisconsin and spent my undergrad years in Madison, WI where I got acquainted with some really special places that sparked my interest in prairies and plants

In my spare time I like to bake pies, read books, climb rocks, swim in lakes, and grow my collection of knitting works in progress!
