Research Interest
I am a Plant Ecologist with interests in wetlands and species invasion. My current research interest is built around the role of wetland plants in filtering excess nutrients from agricultural (and other) runoff. However, my graduate students have worked in a diversity of habitats and with a variety of conservation issues in natural and managed ecosystems.
