Ecology, population dynamics, phenology, disturbance. I am fascinated by butterfly dynamics, currently focusing on traits such as color and lifespan. I'm broadly interested in animal responses to environmental change at the population level and how those responses vary in relation to individual and population traits. I've worked primarily with birds and butterflies.
