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 applicability of long-term citizen science data sets in answering ecological questions surrounding the effects of climate change on species, populations, and processes in New England.
Boston University undergraduate
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.
B.A. Connecticut College
I am interested in how plants respond to climate change.
BU Academy student
I study the relationships between leaf longevity in evergreen species, phylogenetics, and climate.

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.
