Research Interests

I would love to know more about any aspect of how the world works, because it is an interesting place. However, I am especially interested in conservation efforts in any field since the earth is the one planet we know of with life and biodiversity within that life, but changes to the ecosystems are causing problems. In the Echinacea project, I would like to know more about different characteristics of the plant that are changing through the years with various treatments.


I am from Roseville, Minnesota. In my spare time I like to run, ski, and ride horses, which are all recently acquired hobbies. I also like to read and bike.
