Current Research

As a Natural Resources Specialist at the Northern Research Station (NRS) I prepare reports on invasive plant species. These reports vary from state to regional assessments and are designed to inform managers and concerned citizens about the status of the invasive plant species monitored in this region. With the NRS data I further investigate regional trends, patterns, and changes including site level characteristics that may impact the presence of invasive plants.

Research Interests

My interests are to explore various invasive plant topics and to further investigate what factors are driving their presence and abundance.
