I am a plant
physiological ecologist focusing on the uptake and transport of water through
plants. My research investigates the effect of drought and biodiversity
on the community dynamics of tallgrass prairie. I am also involved in creating
a pocket prairie near UHD to enhance local biodiversity in this highly
developed urban landscape. I am interested in the use of native plants in
residential landscaping and developing novel watering systems that promote
efficient water use by plants.
I am an ecologist interested in plant microbe interactions and in
questions of agro-ecology. My research
focuses on diseases of grapevines and factors that influence fruit quality and
