Postdoctoral Scholar

San Diego State University

Clarissa is a postdoctoral research scholar working jointly in the Conservation Ecology Lab and the Vegetation and Landscape Ecology (VALE) Lab at San Diego State University. Her research uses a combination of observational, experimental, and advanced statistical modeling techniques to understand the drivers of global change and their associated impacts on plants at various ecological scales (i.e., organismal $\rightarrow$ landscape). She is currently a member of the CNNCTS network, co-producing knowledge with the Tribal Working Group to assess the vulnerability and adaptive capacity of culturally significant species to climate change.
