Hello there

I am a 3rd year PhD candidate working with Dr. Chris Lortie at York University’s Department of Geography. My research deals with plant community ecology and biogeography, although I also have interests in conservation biology. Specifically, my PhD project is related to the fascinating topic of indirect interactions between plants: reviewing and synthesizing the literature, and conducting both manipulative and mensurative experiments in the deserts of South America. I enjoy conforming multi-national teams, since they provide excellent means to understand ecological patterns and processes at larger geographical scales.
