My current research work focuses on the shoulders and medians along highway corridors, which are highly managed but severely underutilized. There are thousands of acres of land along roadways that state department of transportation offices are paying millions of dollars per year to mow and maintain. I am exploring ways to utilize those spaces for additional usages through the lenses of productivity, ecology, and education. Future plans for this work include expanding the study to include other heavily maintained linear corridors including railroad and utility corridors.
