I am an Assistant Professor in Plant Physiological Ecology in the Department of Biological Sciences at Idaho State University.

I am a broadly-trained plant physiological ecologist and global change biologist.  My general research interests are plant ecophysiology, climate change ecology, and ecohydrology.  Currently, my primary research projects focus on understanding plant responses to climate change, and mechanisms of changes in species’ range limits (i.e., resistance/resilience). My work spans organizational scales from molecular to the canopy/landscape level.  My other interests include variation in light spectral quality due to sky condition (clear, cloudy, cloud-immersed),  water transport (hydraulic function) in plants, and cloud-forest ecohydrology.

I am currently seeking graduate students for my lab.  If you are interested please contact me.
