Research Interests

  • My research program focuses on the spatial dynamics of populations and (meta)communities. I use microcosm experiments, field studies and models to test and develop ecological theory about community structure and the maintenance of biodiversity. Current projects focus on conservation and metapopulation dynamics of the threatened Valley Elderberry Longhorn Beetle, and maintenance of species diversity and ecosystem properties of metacommunities in the lab.

Areas of Emphasis

  • Conservation and Spatial Ecology


  • Environmental Science and Policy
