I am a quantitative ecologist and biogeographer and ask questions using different taxa and systems to better understand the biological and environmental interactions that limit species’ occurrence. I use models to test hypotheses and examine patterns of biodiversity, particularly within a spatial context.

Within the lab, we examine host-parasite and host-pathogen relationships from a community ecology perspective. Further, we use tools to estimate the distribution of species to examine range shifts and broad patterns of occurrence.
