Research

I use both field and greenhouse experiments to address two themes

1) Drought survival and functional strategies in native perennial grasses

2) Genetically-appropriate plant materials for ecological restoration

My field research takes place in Northern California in some of the most picturesque grasslands and prairies in the world, using a few charismatic native perennial grass species.  All of my field sites are University of California Natural Reserves or Research and Extension Centers, both of which are invaluable resources for California’s ecological and agricultural research communities.
