Ecology     Evolution    Restoration    Science Communication  

Hello! I am a PhD candidate in the Schweitzer lab in the Ecology and Evolutionary Biology department at the University of Tennessee. I use tools from microbial ecology, community ecology, evolutionary ecology, ecosystem ecology, bioinformatics, and analytical chemistry to identify the role of soil microbiomes on plant and soil function in both natural and disturbed ecosystems.


As an ecologist interested in integrating high-quality science with conservation and restoration practices, my goal is to conduct and communicate research that can enhance management perspectives.
