I'm broadly interested in the interaction between plants and their environment. My focus is on carbon storage in trees. To explore carbon dynamics, I measure the size, age, and seasonality of nonstructural carbohydrates in various species using colorimetric analyses and isotopic techniques. Understanding how carbon flows through trees allows us to better predict forest growth and survival under global change.
I'm currently a Donnelly Postdoctoral Fellow working in the Brodersen Lab at the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies.
