My current research questions focus on disturbance ecology. They consider the ecosystem services of native plants that support community adaptability and regeneration from glacial melt, saltwater intrusion, and wildfire. Within these contexts, I am fascinated by the applications of native plants in agricultural landscapes in particular and how they can fortify and enhance our food systems.

My conviction is that vital environmental health solutions are based in community knowledge and empowered by the scientific method.
