Research

My research uses salt marsh communities to study how and why species interactions vary across space. I am beginning experimental and modeling work studying how intraspecific variation affects species interactions, which I became interested in during my PhD when I found that plants interacted differently depending on where they came from. Main areas of research include:

Drivers of variation in plant-plant interactions in salt marshes along the California coast

Impacts of sea-level rise on California salt marsh communities

Continental-scale effects of environmental variability on salt marsh plant communities
