My research interests focus on anthropogenic impacts on ecosystems and the recovery from these impacts. I have worked specifically with gopher tortoises, timber harvesting, military vehicles, and artificial and natural lake assessment.  I also work with plants; I have a long-term project with a historical garden. I serve as the herbarium curator of the vascular plant collection at Lincoln Memorial University.
