I’m a plant systematist and most of my work has been estimating molecular phylogenies of grasses and Acanthaceae. I’m currently collaborating on a project to study pollinator mediated selection on flower shape in Justicia (Acanthaceae). I am curator of the Long Beach State Herbarium (LOB), part of the Consortium of California Herbaria 2, and am working on a flora of the Santa Ana Mountains in collaboration with several Orange County botanists.
