I am interested in the ecological and evolutionary processes that shape the natural world, and the effects that global change is having on these processes. In particular, our research explores the effects of climate change, habitat fragmentation and invasive species on coexistence, eco-evolutionary dynamics and spatially structured communities. To do this, we use lab and field experiments with plants and insects that test fundamental questions in ecology and evolutionary biology.
