My research interests generally involve rare plants and taxonomy. My current work examines the impact of global climate change on the species distribution of rare plants in the Great Basin. With this work we are examining the current distributions of rare plants and then making projections as to how these distributions will change between now and the year 2080. I enjoy this work as it incorporates both theoretical and applied approaches to conservation and rare plant biology. I also have an interest in phylogenetics and taxonomy, and I am currently working on a revision of the genus Eschscholzia, or California poppy.
