I am interested in how weeds establish, how they interact with other organisms, and how they impact crops and plant communities. My research spans across agricultural systems including horticultural crops and rangeland, and tends to focus on plant communities and multiple trophic levels.
When I am not working, I can likely be found mountain biking or climbing in the mountains around Las Cruces.
