I am fascinated with how environmental variation in time and space (spatiotemporal heterogeneity) affect the diversity and functioning of communities. This variation is epitomized by seasonal environments, including the communities that I work in: vernal pools and rock pools. My research also encompasses food webs, metacommunities, latitudinal gradients, spatiotemporal linkages, eutrophication, species invasions, and disturbance ecology.
Courses taught include General Ecology, Population and Community Ecology, Quantitative Methods in Biology, Introduction to Scientific Analysis, Seminar in Ecology, and Freshman Seminar.
