Our lab studies how spatial structure, landscape heterogeneity, and movement patterns alter population dynamics and community stability. We apply mathematical techniques and tools from complex systems science to understand broad-scale patterns in diversity and species interactions. We aim to tie community ecology to restoration and conservation using a variety of field observations, microcosm experiments, and modeling approaches.
Current News and Openings in the Lab:
We are recruiting a postdoc in quantitative community ecology! The position is flexible, with the successful candidate using modeling and/or data synthesis to examine species coexistence and community response to disturbance. Start date is flexible, between February and August 2020. Application review begins December 16 and continues until the position is filled. Apply here.
The lab is also recruiting a PhD student to begin fall 2020. If you are interested in quantitative community ecology, species coexistence, synchrony, and stability of ecological communities, please read Joining the Lab and send an email with a statement of interest and your CV.
