Professor / Chair of Zoology
Adjunct, Honorary and Emeritus Members

I lead a team of post-doctoral researchers, PhD, and undergraduate research students seeking to understand the fundamental drivers of animal and plant population processes in a rapidly changing world. I use these discoveries to provide support for environmental decisions in the areas of biodiversity conservation, invasive species management and habitat restoration. I use a wide range of tools and approaches that combine data collection in the lab, field or from the literature with quantitative modeling techniques that enable analysis and prediction of responses of populations to underlying drivers and manipulations. My primary expertise is in comparative plant population dynamics, invasive plant management and predicting responses of populations to global change.
