I am an ecosystem ecologist with a strong interest in conservation ecology. I study the relationship between biodiversity and ecosystem functioning. I am particularly interested in 1) how organism, energy, and material fluxes between ecosystems impacts the functioning of coupled ecosystems (e.g. aquatic-terrestrial ecotone) and 2) how top consumers influence critical life supporting services like ecosystem nutrient cycling. My lab uses data synthesis, mathematical modelling, spatial analyses and field-based research to study biodiversity and ecosystem functioning.
