As a forest ecologist, my general scientific interest is in better understanding forest ecosystems, both tropical and temperate. I also serve as the Advising Coordinator for the undergraduate programs in Natural Resources and the Science of Natural and Environmental Systems.
My current research is focused on forest soil carbon, nitrogen and phosphorus dynamics, tropical montane forest ecosystems and dynamics of forest soils invaded by exotic earthworms.
I work with the Hubbard Brook Research Foundation to communicate ecosystem science to policy makers and the public through our Science Links.
In 2012, my teaching focused on field biology and principles of forest ecology.
