Research Interests

My research focuses on ecohydrology. In particular, I study how plant water use strategies improve resilience to environmental stress and variability. One of these strategies is CAM photosynthesis, used by cacti and air plants in many water limited ecosystems. A current research project involves an investigation of the tradeoffs between CAM and other photosynthetic pathways.
