My research interests are in the areas of morphometrics, nutrient uptake, and physiological ecology of aquatic vascular plants.

My teaching interests fall into two areas. Botany, aquatic plant biology in particular, is my greatest teaching interest. I am also interested in developing educational courses with a science emphasis for K-12 teachers.
