Our research is broadly focused on the causes and consequences of biodiversity change.
To do that we create new theories on a range of topics from metacommunities to evolutionary rescue. We test and refine theory with experiments--in the lab and the field--by employing a range of model and non-model systems. We strive to communicate our findings far beyond the Ivory tower.
