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.

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.

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.
