I study the ecological effects of land-use change and climate change on plant communities. My research is focused on long-term changes in flowering phenology and local abundance across communities in the Northeast.
B.S. Brown University
I study the combined effects of global change on the phenology, reproductive success, and potential for ecological mismatch in a declining species of aerial insectivorous bird, the Tree Swallow, and their insect prey.
B.A. Williams College
I study the effects of climate change on plant and wildlife populations in the Northeast.
Scientific Assistant - German Centre for Integrative Biodiversity Research
B.A. Boston University
I study the amount of time evergreen plants retain their leaves, including factors that affect this and the effect it in turn can have on an ecosystem.

PhD Boston University
I study the causes, consequences, and management (including communication) responses to environmental change in protected areas. I focus mostly on forest ecology and citizen science, but get involved in lots more.
Boston University undergraduate
I study how climate change is affecting flowering and leaf-out times for plants in the Eastern US.
