My research focuses on landscape level responses to global change. I study contemporary changes in landform types, ecological communities, and species adaptations to the local environment. My goal is to document why landscapes are changing in response to human pressures, how this affect local biodiversity, and support land use policies as well as conservation efforts.
Most of my research is conducted through interdisciplinary collaborations. Using my background in freshwater ecology and experience with spatial hierarchical models I work with a wide range of scientist on contemporary questions in environmental science. So far much of my work has focused on the future of freshwater ecosystems and how the Artic landscape is responding to climate change.
