  • Research Interests and Activities:
    I am interested in how human activities influence the cycling of nutrients in forest ecosystems through climate change, nutrient deposition, and land use changes. My dissertation research focuses on how the effects of climate change, manifested differently in the winter than in the growing season, will impact plant-mediated nutrient dynamics in forests.
