Position Title
PhD Student in Ecology


The goal of my research is to better understand how climate influences temperate forests, and vice versa. I have ongoing projects in the Eastern Sierras and in Central Massachusetts, using dendrochronology and forest census surveys to characterize tree growth and competition over time. When I’m not in the lab or in the field, I am part of the editing and design teams for the Aggie Brickyard, the literary magazine of the UC Davis Graduate Group in Ecology.
