My research interests center around plant ecology, particularly how plants change the cycling of nutrients in the ecosystem. As part of this research, I have examined questions concerning plant competition for soil resources (such as nitrogen), plant-soil microbe relationships, and plant-soil feedbacks on plant performance. I also study litter driven feedbacks on plant performance. I use the tools of ecosystem ecology to understand mechanisms of plant community assembly.
