Our research interests broadly involve how patterns of biodiversity are structured by local and regional processes, such as invasive species, climate change, habitat fragmentation, and other anthropogenic stressors.
Ultimately, this work leads to the question of how ecosystem functions and services may be affected by human activities. In general, we use the combined approach of field surveys, small-scale and large-scale experiments, and statistical modeling to test our hypotheses.
