I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Chicago Botanic Garden studying how fire influences plant reproduction and population dynamics in tallgrass prairie. I received my PhD from the University of Wisconsin-Madison where I investigated factors influencing the distribution, demography, and diversity of herbaceous plants in temperate forests. See Jared’s CV.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time outdoors: hiking, camping, canoeing, birding, botanizing, exploring the natural world, or working on restoration projects. My fascination with ducks and salamanders borders on obsession.
