My broad research interests include fire ecology, forest ecology, terrestrial biogeochemistry, and soil microbial ecology. I am particularly interested in understanding how changing forest disturbance regimes impact ecosystem function and nutrient cycling across spatial and temporal scales. As wildfire increases in frequency and severity throughout the west, it is increasingly important to understand how converging drivers of change will affect post-fire regeneration and forest resilience. I am also passionate about advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion in the field of ecology.
I enjoy being creative and spending time outdoors. My favorite activities include snowboarding, mountain biking, hiking, reading fiction, crocheting, and baking.
