Research Interests

I want to study the impacts of isolation of Echinacea angustifolia on pollination. The remnant prairies, in which Echinacea is a model species, vary is size, and within the remnants the density and number of Echinacea plants are not consistent. I am hoping to learn if the size of the remnant or the proximity to neighboring plants has a greater impact on seed set, which is an indication of the degree of successful pollination. 


In my spare time I like be outside with friends and family running, hiking, skiing, and biking. I love exploring new places in addition familiar ones.
