Research Interests

I focus on species interactions, community structure, and the relationship between biodiversity and ecosystem functions and services. In particular I am interested in understanding how anthropogenic disturbance across spatial scales governs diversity and interactions, above and belowground and at trophic levels directly (herbivores, pollinators) and indirectly (predators, parasites) connected to plants.
