Human well being is intimately tied to biodiversity. My research helps ensure that those ties remain resilient in the future.
I am primarily a climate change biologist trying to predict which species will be most affected by climate change, where they will be affected, and what we can do about it. I use a combination of methods to answer these questions, including: (1) observations of how species have already been affected by climate change, (2) computer simulations, and (3) experiments in the lab and field.
I also research methods for monitoring and managing rare and endangered species.
