Plants are fascinating organisms and critical to the cycling of carbon and water. But climate change is transforming where they grow and whether they survive. My lab explores how climate change affects the fundamental ways that plants manage the resources needed to survive (e.g. carbon and water).

I am currently a Research Assistant Professor at Wake Forest University and an Adjunct Instructor at High Point University. In these roles, my goal is to inspire students to develop a passion for learning and inquiry by exploring challenging environmental issues.
