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 how energy drives competition and community structure today and throughout the Phanerozoic. Since energy affects all life, I have the good fortune to study many varieties of organisms and systems – from dinosaur energetics to competition for forest light.
