I am Postdoctoral Research Scientist in Department of Global Ecology at Carnegie Institution for Science and Department of Biology at Stanford University. Currently, I work with Chris Field, Nona Chiariello, and Tad Fukami to analyze and synthesize the Jasper Ridge Global Change Experiment.
I am broadly interested in global change ecology, especially in models to understand biodiversity and ecosystem. I received my PhD in ecology and MS in statistics from Duke University. My PhD research with Jim Clark and John Terborgh was population and community ecology, focusing on climate change and biogeography of eastern US forests. My MS research with Alan Gelfand was Bayesian and modern statistical models in plant demography and population ecology.
