Broadly, I am interested in studying how climate change and human development pressures impact ecological function across spatial and temporal scales. Specifically, I am curious about the impact of increasing fire frequency and severity on regeneration, composition, and nutrient cycling in subalpine forests of the western United States. Through my research in the Turner Lab, I hope to combine field observations with ecosystem modeling to develop a comprehensive picture of the changes occurring in the forests of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem and provide insights that can be applied to the management of western forest ecosystems throughout the 21st century.
I enjoy hiking, camping, climbing, running, biking, snowboarding, photography, playing music and going to concerts, playing and watching soccer, traveling, and building stuff (woodworking, welding, etc.)
