My research utilizes the principles of landscape ecology to study topics ranging from invasion dynamics and conservation biology to understanding implications of changing landscapes. The unifying theme of my research is how the spatial pattern of resource distribution on a landscape affects ecological processes, from individual behavior to population and community dynamics. I approach these topics with a variety of tools including empirical investigations, computer modeling and spatial analysis.
I study landscape ecology and the interaction between spatial patterns and ecological processes. I am particularly interested in:
- Riparian ecosystems and watershed processes
- Landscape change
- Invasion ecology
