About Caroline

I am a plant and soil ecologist working at the interface of community and ecosystem ecology. My research program seeks to understand the ecology of natural and managed dryland ecosystems and their responses to global change. I am currently particularly interested in exploring plant community vulnerability to climate change and predictors of restoration success across dryland ecosystems. I am committed to using science to support effective land management, decision-making, and public policy in a changing world.
