Current Research

My research focuses on the effects of climate change on plants, pollinators, and plant-pollinator interactions. Specifically, I'm investigating the effects of climate-driven phenological shifts on plant-pollinator interactions and plant and pollinator reproductive success.  I use experimental manipulations to investigate the underlying mechanisms by which climate change is affecting plants and pollinators with hopes of understanding how plants and pollinators might be impacted by climate change and to inform conservation.
