Institution: Medaille College

Description of Expertise:

My research focus is on the Evolution of Increased Competitive Ability (EICA) and the chemical ecology of invasive goldenrods in Europe and Asia. My most recent research investigates the role of allelopathic chemicals in native vs invasive goldenrod populations and their role in mediating competitive interactions and growth dynamics, including metabolic tradeoffs.
