About

I am an ecologist and a writer. My research seeks to better understand how plants interact with each other, with microbes, and with people. When I’m not writing manuscripts, I’m writing poetry.

I have a Ph.D. in Evolution, Ecology, and Organismal Biology from The Ohio State University.

I’m currently a Research Fellow in Ecology at the University of Tartu. Previously, I’ve held post-doctoral research positions at the University of Z├╝rich and the University of Helsinki.

I’ve studied tropical forests, temperate forests, grasslands, and alpine meadows in Panama, Finland, Switzerland, and the United States.
