Research Interests:

I'm interested in understanding the impacts of fire regimes on soil microbial community composition and plant-soil feedbacks. My current research focuses on understanding how fire frequency affects the belowground processes that drive post-fire community assembly and regeneration in a longleaf pine ecosystem in southwestern Georgia.
