Research Interests

I am excited to pursue research that uses biogeographic modelling to solve issues surrounding plant invasion, conservation, and the effects of climate change. Previously, I have researched the effects of climate change on phenology in plants at The College of New Jersey, and the biogeography of North American Chestnut species as an intern at The Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University.
