Assistant Professor, Department of Environmental Science and Policy
I have a specific interest in community ecology of insects. I study the relationship between the environment and community structure at various spatial and temporal scales. My students and I investigate variation in succession patterns, community compositions, etc. of carrion communities and native bee communities, and how these patterns are affected by environmental factors.
■ Ecology meets Forensic Entomology: how does carcass size influence carrion community dynamics?
■ Do flowering bee lawns affect bee community composition?
■ Changes in native bee community composition on agricultural and urban development scale
