If bee-ing your plants is cool, consider me Miles Davis

Thanks for visiting my page!  

I am an ecologist and evolutionary biologist broadly interested in community ecology and pollination.  I am particularly interested in the ways that human activities affect plants, pollinators, and their interactions. As an avid naturalist and outdoorsman I love fieldwork and field experiments, but I don't feel that research is complete without rigorous data analysis and mathematical modeling. I am currently a graduate student in Rebecca Irwin's lab at Dartmouth College, where my dissertation research focuses on how altering flowering phenology affects plant reproduction, pollen limitation, and plant-pollinator interactions. In the future I would like to continue using field experiments to answer questions about how pollinators respond to climate change in terms of phenology and population dynamics.  I am also very excited about using big data sets from citizen science projects to analyze global trends in plants and their pollinators.
