I am interested in understanding broad-scale biodiversity dynamics, in space and time. My research approach is synthesizing large ecological and evolutionary data sets to investigate processes that give rise to the dramatic temporal and spatial variation in different aspects of biodiversity.
I have found that different systems have advantages for answering different questions about biodiversity, so I integrate knowledge from studying various organismal systems, including terrestrial mammals, marine bivalves, and parasites (see more on the research page).
