My research focuses on the process and patterns of speciation in plants. I focus on how plant adaptations to divergent soil conditions impact reproductive isolation, and ultimately speciation. My research approach combines field transplant experiments, molecular phylogenetics, systematics, herbarium collections, and greenhouse experiments to explore the evolution of the California flora.
