I am an evolutionary ecologist with broad interests in life history evolution, behavioral ecology, and population dynamics. Research in my lab uses empirical and quantitative approaches to test basic theory and understand individual, community, and population-level responses to changing environments. Our work also aims to address applied conservation problems which are critically important for making accurate predictions and informed management decisions in the context of global change.
