Bio/Research

My research is focused on the evolution of plant physiology and its mechanistic links to the ecological functioning of populations, communities and ecosystems. Current projects include studies of the ecological causes that drive the macro- and micro-evolution of drought adaptation mechanisms, the evolution of physiological mechanisms that mediate interactions between plants and organisms at other trophic levels, and the implications of functional trait diversity for community assembly and ecosystem function. Because plant physiology directly affects the primary productivity of the earth and the cycling of nutrients and water, our work is increasingly focused on predicting how the course of physiological evolution will be affected by human influences on climate and the global transport of biota.
