Exploring the cause and effect of species diversity patterns in a rapidly changing world
We integrate theory-driven, field-based experiments, observational studies, remote sensing, and large data syntheses to learn about natural systems. Our research is quantitative and applies an interdisciplinary, ecoinformatic approach to investigate aquatic communities, test global change processes, and, ultimately, inform effective conservation actions and policies.
Our research seeks to understand
Climate change and the cumulative effects of multiple stressors
Global ecology, biogeography, and conservation of biodiversity
Implications of land-use for water quality and harmful algal blooms
Biological consequences of stocked fisheries (and other invasive species)
Biodiversity and ecological functioning of urban stormwater ponds and agricultural drainages
