Research/teaching interests:

  • phylogenetic systematics of Ribes (Gossulariacae) and Cirsium (Asteraceae)
  • patterns of speciation and biogeography
  • floristics of the Southwest United States

My interests are in plant systematics, biogeography, and floristics.

Currently, I am working on a revision of Brickellia (Asteraceae; Eupatorieae), a genus of 90-100 species with a distribution centered in the southwest US and western Mexico.

Initial molecular and morphological analyses are underway involving species from the western US and a treatment for Flora North America has been completed.
