Understanding biodiversity in a variable world

I am a community ecologist broadly interested in how we quantity biological diversity in its many forms, and understanding how diversity arises and is maintained in communities. I aim to work at the interface of theory and empiricism, combining experimentation and existing datasets with ecological modelling. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, phylogenetic and functional diversity, species interactions and coexistence in communities, and intraspecific variation.

I am currently a Marie Curie Fellow at the Centre dEcologie Fonctionnelle et Evolutive, CNRS in Montpellier, France working with Cyrille Violle. I will be joining the faculty of Biology at the University of North Caroline, Chapel Hill in fall 2017. 

Previously I was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Colorado, Boulder working with Brett Melbourne (EBIO), and I completed my PhD. with Marc Cadotte in the University of Toronto's Ecology and Evolutionary Biology department in 2013. I also blog at the EEB and Flow.
