Research Interests:

I use demographic and comparative approaches to study how the interactions between a species’ traits and its environment affect fitness and population dynamics. At the Chicago Botanic Garden, I am quantifying the population dynamics of rare and endangered plant species in Illinois. Our ultimate goal is to evaluate the efficacy of associated management strategies to promote plant species recovery and sustainability.
