I'm an ecologist!

I am currently a Postdoctoral Researcher in Dr. Elise Gornish's Lab at the University of Arizona in the School of Natural Resources and the Environment. I am studying the population dynamics of buffelgrass (Pennisetum ciliare), an invasive perennial bunchgrass in the Sonoran Desert.

I completed my Ph.D. work in Dr. Kyle Harms's Lab at Louisiana State University in the Department of Biological Sciences. My dissertation research focused on spatial dispersion patterns of native perennial bunchgrasses in high diversity pine savannas.
