Research Interest

Climate Change & Adaptation
Conservation & Biodiversity
Restoration & Reintroduction


My research is focused on the ecology and conservation of  threatened plant species. Specifically, I am assessing translocation strategies  for long-lived, slow to mature, dispersal limited species facing the dual threat of insect pests and climate change, using Eastern Hemlock as a case study. In general, I am interested in restoration ecology, the role of site selection in  conservation efforts, and how climate change will affect species distribution.
