I am an ecologist, and my research aims to advance our fundamental understanding of the drivers of biodiversity change and the consequences of these changes for human well-being. My research advances a solution to this research challenge by studying the processes that unite all of life on Earth – the metabolic processes by which living systems uptake, store and convert energy, matter and information from their environments to grow and persist. I combine theory, experiments and synthesis to study how living systems change as the environment changes, and what these changes mean for human well-being.
