My research is looking at the effects of habitat fragmentation on plant-pollinator networks in tallgrass prairies, using the Western Prairie Fringed Orchid as a model system. I am using eDNA metabarcoding to identify the orchid's network, to look at the effects of isolation and connectivity of prairie patches on arthropod presence and visitation to the orchid, and to look at the effect of the orchid on the pollinator networks of co-occurring plants.

My research focuses on looking at potential constraints on the reproductive success of the charismatic megaflora, the threatened western prairie fringed orchid, Platanthera praeclara. I'm interested in studying what influences pollination services to this species and other factors that may influence fruit production in this plant.
