Bio

I am a quantitative ecologist interested in community response to climate change and human impacts, sexual selection, and biodiversity conservation. I use field surveys, laboratory experiments, long-term datasets, and (recently) genetic analysis to address my research questions. I have mostly used dragonflies in my research, but I am interested in other groups of insects as well as birds and plants. Currently, I’m interested in understanding the variation of dragonfly diet across different types of agroecosystems with various diversification practices. ​I am also highly interested in communicating science to the public, engaging the public in scientific research, and improving the academic environment by advocating justice, equity, diversity and inclusion.
