  • Ethnobotany, with special interest in plant use for physical and/or psychological well-being;
  • Diversity and conservation, particularly in regional (southwestern Pennsylvania and adjacent states) and tropical forests; 
  • Landscape and brownfield restoration, particularly in plant-based ecosystem services;
