My research interests involve how plant communities respond to environmental climate change stressors. I am mainly interested in how plants alter their molecular physiology in response to changes in the climate, such as increased drought or salinity. Plants experiencing a climate change stressor may release volatile compounds that can alter neighboring plant communities through plant-plant communication. These stressed plants may also be a catalyst for changes in plant-insect interactions, as well as plant-soil interactions.
