My research is focused on understanding the relative roles of climate, physiology, and species’ interactions in range dynamics and changes in biodiversity across the earth. I use temporal analyses of biogeography, comparative traits-based analyses, and experimental approaches to better understand the mechanistic drivers of species’ ranges. One primary application of my work is to develop scenarios of future responses to climate change. I apply my work across habitats for broad comparison, but my ‘home’ system is the nearshore marine ecosystem. I am currently a postdoctoral researcher in the Biodiversity Research Centre at the University of British Columbia.
