Research Interests

Community ecology, disease ecology, restoration ecology, species invasions, top-down and bottom-control of communities, and animal behavior



My research interests span a broad array of basic and applied topics in community ecology including the community ecology of diseases, biological invasions, and restoration ecology. The following are some major research themes: Community ecology of disease; Consumer and resource control of productivity, diversity, and invasibility of communities and ecosystem; Invasion and restoration of grasslands; Invasions and coastal geomorphology and protection; and Behavior- and consumption-mediated effects of consumers on plant communities.
