Brief Research Interests: 

Biodiversity responses to land use and climate change; avian ecology; species interactions



I study human impacts to biodiversity. More specifically, I'm interested in how land use change and climate change impact the distribution, structure, and functioning of biotic communities. 

My work is applied, quantitative, and grounded in natural history. I integrate information across various spatial scales (from hyperlocal to macroecological) and levels of biological organization (from individuals to metacommunities) to inform conservation and management. I have worked with many taxa and study systems, but am most knowledgeable about birds and forest ecosystems.

​My current and future research is motivated by three driving questions:

  1. How do environmental changes occurring across multiple scales reshape species distributions and biotic interactions?

  2. How do we leverage this information to inform the conservation and management of functional ecosystems?

  3. How do we integrate research, teaching, and community engagement to achieve more effective and equitable conservation and educational outcomes?
