I am interested in understanding how the environment impacts biodiversity, and how natural selection interacts with plants diversity to promote (or constrain) adaptation to new environments. My research has focused on the importance of phenotypic plasticity and hybridization in plant evolution and invasion biology using Arabidopsis thaliana as a model system.
