Evolutionary Ecology of Species Interactions

Understanding biodiversity requires more than identifying the number of species on earth. We must also elucidate how species interactions govern the dynamics of communities, ecosystems, and species diversity. My lab uses a broad combination of approaches including experimental ecology, field observations, molecular phylogenetics, and population genetics to understand the role that interspecific interactions play in creating diversity.


Outreach & Affiliations

Archbold Biological Station
We conduct research at the Archbold Biological Station in Florida, an amazing resource for researchers and instructors.
Evolution Education
As part of a National Science Foundation funded project, our lab group developed a teaching module for 3rd-5th grade students to improve evolution education. The module focuses on evolution and uses examples from the Florida scrub ecosystem.
Women in Science and Engineering
WiSE offers a number of exciting opportunities.
