My research focuses on the links between the structure and function of ecosystems, and how they respond to humans as drivers of change and as components of ecosystems.
I am an Assistant Research Professor with an appointment at Biosphere 2, and an adjunct appointment with SNRE. I advise students in SNRE and teach courses on urban ecosystem ecology, soil-plant interactions, and science communication.
