bridging the process-pattern divide in ecology and evolution
I have a broad interest in ecology and evolutionary biology. My primary research interests lie in:
i) understanding ecological processes which facilitate coexistence and community assembly,
ii) investigating how ecological and microevolutionary processes can drive macroevolutionary patterns
I have a strong belief that a well-rounded understanding of natural history, particularly of study organisms, is essential to successful studies of ecology and evolution. Undergraduate research students are encouraged to become familiar with their study organisms - primarily Anolis lizards - prior to beginning independent research projects (you can read more about natural history observations contributing to this research here).
