My research focuses on red macroalgae in freshwater streams in the eastern U.S. Macroalgae are important, but understudied members of these systems, with unique life cycles and diverse reproductive strategies. I will use field surveys and population genetics to investigate the evolution and ecology of the life cycle and reproductive systems, and hope to work with community scientists to better understand the diversity and distribution of freshwater red macroalgal species.
