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, plant, microbial, and evolutionary ecology in my research using a diversity of approaches including field sampling, glasshouse experiments, molecular biology laboratory techniques, soil chemistry, genomic sequencing,

and bioinformatics.

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