Specialty

My research focuses on two pervasive and inter-related forms of biological change: disease emergence and species invasions. Both have important consequences not only for individuals and populations, but for entire ecological communities and ecosystem processes. Invasions and disease also have costly economic and health repercussions for human societies. I use long-term data, ecological experiments and modeling approaches to examine the factors that drive disease emergence and biological invasions, and how changes in disease and invasion levels, in turn, affect community interactions and ecosystem processes in aquatic environments.
