I am interested in how nutrient levels influence plant community dynamics within ecosystems. I have a special interest in ecosystems that are stressful to plant growth, such as alpine areas, peatlands, and salt marshes. Current work in my lab is focused on invasive species and how anthropogenic eutrophication influences their abundance at the expense of that of native species.
