Art by Brooke Weiland Studios

I am a soil ecologist and postdoctoral research associate at San Diego State University.

I work in the Department of Biology in the Barber lab. I received my PhD in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology

in the Schweitzer lab at the University of Tennessee.


I integrate ecosystem ecology, microbial ecology, and biogeochemistry in my research using a diversity of

approaches including field observations, molecular biology laboratory techniques, glasshouse experiments,

genomic sequencing, and bioinformatics.

I am passionate about using rigorous and readily translatable science to solve pressing environmental challenges.
