Position title: PhD student
My research is generally focused on the ecological implications of plant morphology and physiology. Specifically, I am focused on how variations in ploidy level impacts woody species at the physiological level. Ploidy is known to cause a variety of physiological changes in plant lineages, but how these changes impact ecology and abiotic stress tolerance is a relatively young field. With a background in education and land restoration, I hope my research can foster new insight and connection to local ecology within the broader community.
