Two of the most pressing challenges for environmental biologists are forecasting the spread of non-native invasions and predicting the response of native species to global climate change. My research explores leading questions at the intersection of these global challenges, rooted in a fundamental curiosity in the ecological and evolutionary factors that shape species distributions. My current work focuses on three core questions:
- What limits the spread and impacts of invasive species?
- How do species interactions shape climate change responses?
- Can species evolve to rapidly changing climate?
