My research focuses on understanding the mechanisms by which plant communities arise and subsequently affect ecosystem processes. This makes the investigation of exotic plant invasion a central component of my research. Accordingly, I am also very interested in understanding the ecological basis for, and subsequent effects of, restoring native plant communities. Within this broad area, I am particularly interested in belowground ecology, and I try to bring a systems-based perspective to my research questions. I also put considerable effort into providing international-educational experiences for both graduate and undergraduate students, and I chair our interdisciplinary M.S. program in Environmental Science & Policy.
