The unifying theme of my research is to understand how human stressors to the environment affect biodiversity and how to mitigate those impacts. These stressors include changes to landscapes, climate change, and species introductions. I often study spatial and temporal dynamics and use field studies at large spatial and long temporal scales to test theory and link ecological pattern with process. Areas of research include connectivity/corridors, habitat fragmentation, plant-pollinator networks, insect community ecology, stable isotope ecology, and conservation biology.
I’ll be starting as assistant professor in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology (EBIO) at the University of Colorado in August 2019. Please stay tuned for and inquire about opportunities in the lab.
