Meredith is a PhD candidate in ESPM working on the Alpine Treeline Warming Experiment located at Niwot Ridge in Colorado. She is interested in species interactions and their role in community assembly within the alpine tundra. Specifically she studies how climate warming may modify these interactions to buffer or enhance the potential for local extinction through an actively heated experiment located at 11,000 ft in the Colorado front range. Phenology shifts associated with warming in alpine plant communities are her current focus. Her background is in rare plant and community ecology within California’s eastern Sierra Nevada.
