I am broadly interested in exploring the interface of plants’ biophysical processes and community ecology. My previous work was done in mountain treelines and arctic tundra on how plants modulate microclimates under global climate change and how spatial patterns of vegetation shift consequently. My work will be centered on using models to better understand the role of energetics in plant communities and how plant’s exploitation of space differs along environmental gradients.
