In addition to managing the Peabody’s botanical collections, my interests include flowering plant systematics and evolution, North American floristics, and biodiversity informatics. My more recent taxonomic and systematic research focuses on Viburnum (Adoxaceae) and the mangosteens (the genus Garcinia, Clusiaceae). I am also interested in the North American flora and have conducted survey and inventory work in the eastern and central United States. Additionally, I am heavily involved in several herbarium digitization projects, including the New England Vascular Plants, Lichen/Bryophyte, and the Pteridophyte Collections Consortium TCNs, among others.
