Research Interests

I am broadly interested in understanding the patterns and processes that structure ecological communities, and how the effects of human activities (habitat fragmentation, land use change and climate change) influence patterns of biodiversity. I have explored questions in community and landscape ecology with a variety of taxa (birds, bats, rodents, snails and marine invertebrates) in diverse landscapes (mountains, tropical and temperate forests, coastal marshes and rocky intertidal systems). My future work will build upon this experience with the added focus of providing relevant information to inform conservation decisions.
