Academic background

Summary of research

My interests focus upon insect ecology at community and ecosystem scales. I'm interested in insect assemblage structure, how external forces influence insect community structure, especially anthropogenic land use and disturbance, and how insect community structure influences ecosystem processes such as organic detritus processing and nutrient mobilization. I approach these questions on several fronts, including forest canopy insect ecology, forest soil microarthropods, and freshwater macroarthropod ecology. I am also interested in developing site-specific biomonitoring protocols in Northern California.
