About Me

My research interests broadly encompass the field of plant conservation.  Specifically, my research aims to focus on species responses to anthropogenic stressors such as climate change and habitat modification, as well as analyze the genetic basis underlying local adaptation of plant populations especially in the context of changing abiotic conditions.  Using ecological modelling methods in combination with molecular analyses, this research will contribute to a better understanding of the genetics of adaptation to different environments, and predict where species are likely to be distributed in response to ongoing environmental changes that characterize the world today.
