Assistant Professor, Biology
Biological Sciences, systems biology
I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Biology at the University of Washington. I am an ecologist focused on multi-species ecological communities. My group’s research program is focused on how the structure of ecological interaction networks affect ecological stability and functioning (especially in the context of response to environmental change), integrating theoretical, empirical, and data analytic approaches. Our empirical work has primarily used plant-pollinator networks as a model system. I studied at Wesleyan University (BA), Yale University (MS), and Stanford University (PhD). Prior to joining UW, I was on the faculty at Emory University for 10 years.
