Research Summary

Understanding the functional and ecological diversity of vascular plants from an evolutionary perspective.

My lab is interested in all aspects of plant evolution and function, though we do gravitate toward plants living in arid environments

Past or Present Projects Available:

Trichomes density and mutualism on leaves of Viburnum; Investigations in Stable Isotope Fractionation of Multiple Plant Types; Leaf form and function in Viburnum (Adoxaceae); Diversification and the evolution of C4 photosynthesis in Poaceae
