I am interested in plant physiological ecology. Currently, I am working on water transport in members of Genus Rhododendron to understand how species in this diverse clade have adapted to a wide range of climates. For my dissertation research, I plan to study physiological traits of urban and native trees to elucidate the impacts of a stressful urban environment on plant function.
