My research aims to uncover the patterns and processes by which populations respond to natural and anthropogenic variation with a focus on species at opposite ends of the relative abundance continuum—those that are rare and/or declining and those that are exotic and/or spreading.  Although I study many different species in many different types of ecosystems across the world, my work is always grounded in applying ecological theory and quantitative analyses to problems of rarity or invasiveness that might be amenable to interventions (e.g. sustainability, restoration or eradication). 

My research can be broken into three (interrelated) foci: (see more...)
