I am a community ecologist, landscape ecologist and conservation biologist. I am broadly interested in understanding the patterns and processes that structure ecological communities and I study how human activities (habitat fragmentation, land use change and climate change) influence patterns of biodiversity. My research has explored questions with a variety of taxa (birds, bats, rodents, snails and marine invertebrates) in diverse landscapes (mountains, tropical and temperate forests, coastal marshes and rocky intertidal systems). My current research is focused on answering questions that provide relevant information to inform conservation decisions.
I am currently a postdoctoral fellow in the School of Forestry and Wildlife Sciences at Auburn University.
