I am a restoration ecologist broadly interested in herbaceous plant communities, functional traits, and invasive species. For my post-doctoral work, I'm currently studying how trait-environment interactions, disturbance regimes, soil legacy, and species reintroductions affect restoration of Ozark woodland - glade complexes.
