I am a postdoc at the University of Wyoming. I am interested in the effects of contingency on plant community dynamics, particularly in the context of regeneration after disturbance.

I work in Lauren Shoemaker’s lab studying the role of environmental variation and biotic interactions in patterns of species coexistence and diversity. I was recently awarded a USDA-NIFA postdoc to study lagged effects of precipitation and drought on coexistence in California rangelands.
