Research Interests

I am broadly interested in how anthropogenic changes influence the ecological and evolutionary dynamics of natural communities. This summer, I would like to explore how fire influences the spatial and temporal flowering dynamics of Echinacea angustifolia populations in remnant prairies.

About Me

I graduated from Carleton College in March 2014 with degree in Biology. While at Carleton, I worked extensively in tallgrass prairies primarily studying herbivore effects on plant communities and edge effects in grassland bird communities. I am excited to join the Echinacea Project and I am eager to learn more about the prairie and its inhabitants.
