More About

I am a NSF GRFP Fellow and a Ph.D. student in the Odum School of Ecology. My research investigates the effects of fragmentation on levels of molecular and quantitative genetic diversity in tallgrass prairie in the U.S. Midwest, as well as how that diversity is (or is not) incorporated when prairies are restored.
