About me


I'm an Assistant Curator at the William L. Brown Center of the Missouri Botanical Garden. I study high-elevation plant ecology, climate change, and ethnobotany. I often find myself working on rhododendrons in the eastern Himalaya.

Fast and Cheap in the Fall: Phylogenetic determinants of late flowering phenologies in Himalayan Rhododendron (Hart, Georgian & Salick, Am J. Bot.)

Herbarium specimens show contrasting phenological responses to Himalayan climate (Hart, Salick, Ranjitkar & Xu in PNAS)
