I am seeking graduate students and postdoctoral fellows to work with our lab
Fields of study
Global change, ecosystem ecology, plant-soil interactions, biodiversity
We are a diverse and international group who focus on how global changes impact terrestrial ecosystems at local, regional and global scales. Recently, we’ve focused on three general areas: (1) Understanding and modeling connections among soil organisms, herbivores, parasites, plants and ecosystem function (2) Understanding how shifting above- and below-ground biodiversity and global change alters the composition and function of ecosystems and (3) Exploring how scale and location influence ecological patterns and ecosystem processes. We work across scales from the micro (soil food webs) to the macro (regional carbon fluxes) as well as across diverse terrestrial ecosystems. We use a combination of observations, experiments and models to answer ecological questions.
