Ecology, Environments, Biogeochemistry, and Paleobiology
I am broadly interested in the interactions between life and its environment. My interests have taken me to multiple habitats (grassland, forest, marine), organisms (rodents, bears, plants, insects, mollusks), and across different time scales (current, decades, millions of years). My research focuses on using field and laboratory studies to understand ecological responses to environmental change in the past, present, and future. My work typically includes some stable isotope geochemistry for diet and environmental reconstructions in combination with other indicators of diet, physiology, movement, and environment.
