I do experimental field research in community ecology. My research interests are fairly broad but center around the ecology of species diversity. In particular, my research addresses four key questions:

  1. How is ecosystem function related to trophic and species diversity?
  2. How important is the regional species pool for maintenance of local species richness?
  3. How does habitat affect local species diversity?
  4. How do human activities affect species diversity?
