In a broad way, my  interest is the relationship between biodiversity and ecosystem function, and how important ecological drivers like climate change, can affect this relationsip. In the Smith Lab I am carrying out my research working with grassland plant communities in Konza Prairie, and my current research is focused on dominant species, and how communitites respond and recover from the loss of dominant species in different environmental settings.
