My research looks at plant communities in wetland and mesic forest systems. Recent projects have focused on the efficacy of legacy sediment removal and floodplain reconnection as a stream restoration technique; the effect of invasive wavyleaf basketgrass on forest ecosystems; and the ecosystem responses to overbrowsing by white-tailed deer.
