I am a 2nd year Masters Student planning on transferring to PhD at York University. I am interested in positive interactions, restoration ecology and biological conservation/sustainability. Currently, I am studying plant facilitation and its restoration applications in two Californian deserts (The Mojave and the San Joaquin Basin). Previously, I have examined cushions in the alpine, the effects of deer herbivory on forest composition and insect physiology. I enjoy greatly biology and what I do, but I also live a second life as a die-hard music enthusiast.
