- Understanding the feedbacks between community structure, population dynamics, and evolutionary processes. To achieve this understanding, I construct mathematical models and uncover their emergent properties using analytical methods and numerical simulations. Current projects include understanding (a) how spatial-temporal variation and individual heterogeneity influence population viability, (b) metacommunity dynamics, (c) the effects of phenotypic plasticity on food web dynamics, and (d) the evolution of dispersal and predator-prey interactions.
