Research Interests

  • Conservation biology applications of theoretical evolutionary and community ecology

My research is at the interface between theoretical evolutionary ecology and conservation biology: I use mathematical models and simulations to investigate how anthropogenic impacts cause rapid evolution and community change. While researching a wide range of biological topics from life history evolution to ecosystem resilience, I develop theory relevant to conservation management decisions, particularly in marine systems.

Area of Emphasis

  • Conservation Ecology, Integrative Ecology, and Marine Ecology


  • Environmental Science & Policy
