Research Interests 

Research in the Wetland Plant Ecology lab is focused on 1) Identifying the effects of anthropogenic stressors (climate change, eutrophication, altered land use, introduction of exotic species, contaminants) on wetland plants and wetland plant communities and 2) Determining the capacity of wetland plant communities and wetland plants to mediate the adverse effects of human population growth.
