I am a doctoral candidate at the University of New Mexico and whose interests lie at the intersection of macroecology and macroevolution. My work focuses on large scale trends and mechanisms in organismal metabolism. In particular, I am interested in the ecological significance of metabolic power. How does energy drive patterns in physiology, competition, and community structure today and throughout the Phanerozoic? Since energy affects all life, my curiosity had led me to study many varieties of organisms and systems – from dinosaur energetics to competition for forest light.
