I study the ecology of communities in a changing world.
My work focuses on understanding the processes that connect animals and plants, and how those processes are affected by disturbance. Results uncover how intensifying climate change and human land-use are interacting to affect long-term change in the biodiversity and function of our ecosystems.
My approach integrates natural history and observational data with manipulative experiments to more finely examine the mechanisms that drive ecological patterns. This involves collaboratively testing new technologies, leveraging big-data resources, and developing models to forecast ecosystem composition and function.
