I am broadly interested in how abiotic factors affect the distribution and composition of plant communities. I have worked previously in tropical forests, grasslands, and more recently in tidal wetlands. My exposure to various hydraulic processes sparked my interest in the role of water in shaping and ultimately linking ecosystems together, which has led me to focus on the plant-water relations of trees. For my research I hope to investigate this theme among species representing different functional types across a secondary tropical forest chronosequence, in order to better understand how climatic and hydraulic conditions might affect processes of forest recovery and development.
