Ecology in a Changing World


Welcome to the Community and Global Change Ecology Lab website!  I study community and ecosystem ecology in terrestrial environments to understand the structure of communities and the functioning of ecosystems in a changing world.  Take a look around the site to learn more!


I have recently been promoted to an Assistant Professor position in the Department of Biological Sciences at Idaho State University!  Currently, I am in the process of starting new research projects near the university.  If you are interested in pursuing a career in ecological studies related to global change, then please feel free to contact me to inquire about opportunities at ISU.


I and my colleagues here at ISU and at Boise State University recently received a grant from NSF-Idaho EPSCoR to study the ecological repercussions of genome size and ploidy-level in big sagebrush, Artemisia tridentata.  We are currently recruiting a PhD student to collaborate with us on this grant.  Please contact me if you are interested in learning more!
