As a graduate student in botany, my interests lie in the floristics of the California flora. I am also interested in researching the relationships between people, culture and plants and how anthropogentic forces have influenced plant selection and distribution of species.
For my master’s thesis I am currently conducting a floristic study of the South Fork Tule River Watershed, in the southern Sierra Nevadas of California, the majority of which is on the Tule River Indian Reservation. This project is motivated by my desire to call attention to the poorly documented botanical diversity on California tribal trust lands, where native plants have great cultural significance.
