Species interactions and community dynamics

I am broadly interested in animal behavior and community ecology. Most of my research has focused on behavioral ecology, population biology, and their intersection. Recently, in particular, I am interested in the roles of individual variation in ecological processes.

Student research

Students are encouraged to develop their own projects not restricted to the above topics or the systems. Although not a set rule, I strongly encourage students to develop a theoretically grounded empirical project rather than a purely theoretical project.

Key words

Population and Community Ecology, Behavioral Ecology, Ecological Applications, Quantitative Ecology
