Research Interests:

My research is focused on adaptations associated with shifts between terrestrial and aquatic lifestyles during plant evolution. I am broadly interested in the genetic basis of physiological traits that evolve under radically different environmental conditions upon colonization of new ecosystems. Because internal and external microbial communities are invariably intertwined with plants in natural environments, I am also interested in the broader consequences of the movements of plants and their associated microbiomes between habitats, whether transitions between emerged and submerged environments, or introductions of non-native plants to new locations.
