I am currently PhD candidate at the University of Florida. I am broadly interested in understanding the physiological ecology and evolution of vascular plants. In particular, I really dig ferns and cycads. In these groups, I am especially interested in the evolution of ecophysiological traits, how environmental pressures drive adaptation, and how traits determine species' distributions. To address these questions, I mix fields of plant physiology, ecology, biogeography, and evolution. Check out my research page for more info and if you get excited, let's collaborate on something!
When I'm not the lab, the field, or my office, I like to let off steam and decompress with rock climbing, running, olympic weightlifting, and drawing.
