Alexander von Humboldt Postdoctoral Research Fellow
I Study Ecology
I use theory, experiment, and natural history to determine what controls the diversity and distribution of symbiont communities. My work focuses primarily on the mutualism between the majority of terrestrial plants and mycorrhizal fungi, though I am interested broadly in all types of mutualism.

July 2021: New paper out in early view at American Naturalist. We find that the ratio of symbiotic costs is equal to the square root of symbiotic benefits. Very proud of this work
December 2020: I was proud to participate in the CLAND Machine Learning Workshop. Special thanks to Rose Abramoff for organizing this and for posting all of our lectures online! I embedded my video above.
May 2020: I am pleased to announced I have been awarded the Alexander von Humboldt Postdoctoral Research Fellowship. I will be working with Prof. Mark van Kluenen at the University of Konstanz.

21 Jan 2020: Check out our newly published global change projections for ectomycorrhizal fungi, published OpenAccess in Journal of Biogeography! We predict that climate warming over the next 50 years could result in the loss of 26% of ectomycorrhizal fungal species over an area twice the size of Alaska state!

16 May 2019: Our study on the global distribution of tree-root symbioses was featured as the cover of Nature!
