Ecology, Management, and Restoration of Rangelands
Research: 
My research is focused on land cover change in grasslands, shrublands, and savannas. Many of these dryland ecosystems are undergoing a transition in which unpalatable and noxious woody plants are proliferating at the expense of grasses and forbs.
Research Topics: 
Climate Adaptation and Sustainability
Invasive Species
Ecology Management and Restoration of Rangelands
