Current Research

As a member of the research group in Houghton I work on a variety of projects focused on obtaining a better understanding of the effects of changing conditions (climate, invasive species) on belowground processes in forest and wetland ecosystems. My main responsibilities in Houghton are mangement of research activities in the Rhizotron and Mesocosm facilities. I also serve as the lab manager for the facility, support research with graduate students and collaborators, and supervise undergraduate technicians.
