Broadly speaking, my research interests include landscape ecology and community ecology in grasslands and urban ecosystems. More specific interests focus on the effects of anthropogenic changes to the environment (especially agriculture and urbanization, the two dominant forms of human land use) on the abundance, diversity, and long-term viability of animals. The research projects conducted by me and my students typically focus on arthropods and birds, but the organism used is not as important as the research question being asked.
