I am a soil ecologist and postdoctoral research associate at San Diego State University. I work in the Barber lab in the Department of Biology. My research expertise and interests include soil microbial ecology, ecosystem ecology, biogeochemistry, plant-soil interactions, restoration ecology, and evolutionary ecology. I completed my PhD in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology in the Schweitzer lab at the University of Tennessee in 2022.
I am passionate about integrating high-quality science with conservation and restoration practices. My goal is to conduct and communicate research that can enhance management perspectives.
