Current Projects

Do hybrid watermilfoils displace parental watermilfoils?: comparative study of seed germination, seedling survival, and growth rate in hybrid versus parental watermilfoils (WE Energies Mitigation and Enhancement Fund)


Quantitative genetics of natural and synthetic populations of hybrid watermilfoils (funded in part by a graduate fellowship from the Aquatic Plant Management Society)


Environmental DNA (eDNA) detection of Eurasian watermilfoil (Missoula and Teton Counties Weed and Pest Control Districts)


Characterization of phytoene desaturase variants from sensitive and resistant Eurasian watermilfoil ("Building partnerships in Water Research between GVSU and MSU"; Michigan State University Water Initiative Research Grant)


Commercialization of aquatic plant identifications (National Science Foundation Innovation Corps; Michigan Economic Development Corporation's Tech Transfer Talent Network)
