My research is broadly focused in desert ecology and botany. I utilize multiple approaches and time scales to establish baselines to better understand modern biodiversity and connect science to conservation.
I value field based natural history education that connects a student to what is being studied through personal interactions. Teaching interests range from systematic botany to ethnoecology, conservation, and biogeography.
