My background includes a PhD in Ecology, ten years of experience conducting applied and fundamental research in academic and applied settings, and peer-reviewed papers across a diversity of topics. Areas of expertise include community ecology, experimental design of field and greenhouse studies, species distribution modeling, climate change vulnerability analyses, phylogenetic comparative methods, plant-soil feedback, and statistical modeling.

I work for the City of Boulder's Open Space and Mountain Parks (OSMP) in the role of Science Officer. I also hold an adjunct faculty position in the Department of Ecology and Evolution (EBIO) at CU Boulder.
