"I am committed to increasing the awareness and relevance of biological, ecological, and earth sciences for students of all ages. I enjoy teaching college students and being able to provide personalized attention and teaching methods for each student. I am committed to providing students the opportunity to apply classroom concepts through inquiry based labs and activities. I also enjoy working with students and assisting them in their research."

I have strong research interests in identifying how land-use change, management practices, and climate change may influence carbon pools and fluxes both aboveground and belowground. I also enjoy helping undergraduates with research projects pertaining to soil physical and biological changes, forest ecology projects, and invasive species management projects.
