Research Interests

My broad research interests are in plant ecology, agriculture, and urban ecology. During my B.S. at UCSD, I researched the effects of climate change on the flowering phenology and ecology of the California state plant, the California poppy (Eschsholzia californica), and helped inform county projects on sustainable agriculture. I also participated in an NSF REU at University of Washington Friday Harbor Labs, researching eelgrass (Zostera marina) and Seagrass wasting disease transmission dynamics from aquacultured oysters (Crassostrea gigas).

At Temple, I wish to merge my diverse interests by researching the spotted lanternfly (Lycorma delicatula) and its use of plants and impacts on urban ecology and agriculture. I hope to inform management and policy practices that can help maintain and improve agriculture and sustainable urban environments.
