I am interested in the evolution of plant diversity, particularly at the lowest taxonomic levels. In my lab we use multidisciplinary approaches to address a variety of questions in plant evolutionary biology from traditional taxonomy to phylogeography and population genetics.

Current projects include:
1. Phylogeography of California Channel Islands flora
2. Systematics of
Platanthera section Limnorchis
3. Biogeography of rhizobia-legume symbioses
4. Digitization of the MSU herbarium
