Stephanie Is a student at Cornell University , studying Environmental Science & Sustainability , and is expecting to graduate in 2019 .

About Me:
I am interning as a Doris Duke Conservation Scholar from Cornell University. I will be working on a project with Nora Gavin-Smyth on the genetic rescue of Cirsium hillii, an endangered thistle native to the Illinois prairie. I'm from Hoboken, New Jersey and this will be my first time in Chicago! I love winter sports, traveling, and growing my plant collection.

Responses to climate change across species ranges: a reciprocal sowing experiment with two closely related legumes (2017)

Understanding how population dynamics function to define species geographic ranges is crucial to our understanding of species range limits and how populations can be expected to respond to large scale climate change. This project will investigate the population dynamics of a rare plant, Lespedeza leptostachya and a closely related species, Lespedeza capitata. Through a
