Akasha M. Faist
Postdoctoral Researcher
Ecology and Evolutionary Biology

As a restoration ecologist, my research is geared toward identifying biotic and abiotic constraints limiting restoration success. Working in the Barger lab I focus on facilitating effective biocrust restoration across different desert and soil types. Through both field and greenhouse experiments, I explore ways to improve biocrust growth and ecosystem functioning. Please check out my personal website for more information on my research in this and other areas of interest.
