I am a graduate student in the biology department at Syracuse University, primarily studying non-native plant invasions in forests of Eastern North America. I have strong research interests in plant ecophysiology, comparative biogeography, leaf functional traits, and plant resource use. I also have a growing personal interest in education and outreach.
