My dissertation research investigates variation in dispersal as a cause and a consequence of geographic range limits. Using the Great Lakes Sea Rocket, Cakile edentula, as a natural model system, I am measuring patterns of variation in seed dispersal traits among populations, quantifying the genetic basis of dispersal trait variation, and evaluating the role of dispersal trait evolution in shaping species' responses to climate change.
