I am interested in leveraging community and population ecology to inform biodiversity conservation in a changing world. The goal of my current Ph.D. work is to understand the effects of climate change on plant species interactions and how it will affect their phenology, fitness, and distributions to inform biodiversity conservation decision-making.
