I am broadly interested in the effects of genetic and ecological processes on population dynamics of invasive and rare plants. My research addresses questions that lie at the interface of population ecology and population genetics.

  • Research: I am broadly interested in the effects of genetic and ecological processes on population dynamics of invasive and rare plants. My research addresses questions that lie at the interface of population ecology and population genetics. Studying invasive and rare plants allows me to examine basic principles of the interactions between ecological and evolutionary processes that contribute to why some plants are very common and others are very rare. A population dynamic perspective provides insights that inform management of invasive plants and conservation of rare plants.
