Research Interests:

I am broadly interested in how plant populations respond to climate change. Currently, my research explores how sex ratios in populations of an alpine plant species (Silene acaulis, gynodioecy) varies with environmental conditions and the consequences of varying sex ratios to population growth and persistence.
