My research focuses on how human activities affect terrestrial invertebrate communities and the ecosystem services they provide, with a special interest in riparian and grassland ecology, food webs, native bees, and invertebrate predators.
Current projects involve examining the effects of restoration, rangeland management, and ungulate grazing on native bee communities and studying the effects of climate change and watershed management on food webs involving invertebrates. Below are some specific examples of topics my students and I are working on.
Specialties: Native Pollinators, Riparian Ecology, Ecosystem Services, Terrestrial Invertebrate Community Ecology
We have a post-doctoral fellow position in native bee ecology open. The position begins April 2018 - see the full ad for more information.
