Ecology and Evolutionary Biology
Professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology and Director Academic Program, Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, College of Literature, Science, and the Arts
My research interests are broad, but generally center on the causes and consequences of biodiversity loss at local, regional, and global scales with an explicit focus on global change drivers. Our work has been published in Science, Nature, Science Advances, Global Change Biology, PNAS, AREES, TREE, and Ecology Letters among other journals. We are especially interested in using AI and machine learning to explore broad-scale patterns of biodiversity and phenotypic variation, mostly in ants.
