Research Summary:

  • I am currently studying the physiology of carbon allocation and carbon storage in trees. I am working on connecting tissue/cell plant physiology with whole-plant physiology and ecology. To function as a cohesive whole, all plants must coordinate their behavior at the cell level. How do storage tissues coordinate with leaves, vascular tissue, and meristems to act collectively as a carbon source or carbon sink? How does tissue-level physiology correspond to whole-plant physiology? To answer these questions, I am attempting to apply mathematical ideas from graph theory, dynamics, and category theory to derive predictions for carbon allocation phenomena.

I am currently a teacher assistant for FANR 3000 Field Measurements.
