 My research group studies plant evolutionary ecology and conservation. We are particularly interested in the ecological and evolutionary consequences of plant-animal interactions, and in linking variation in ecological factors to population viability and selection on plant life history and morphology.

In ongoing work, we use experimental approaches that explicitly link agents, targets and the context of selection, using interactions between pollinators and several orchid species as the main model system. We also use long-term demographic monitoring in natural and managed field populations to examine effects of natural and human-induced environmental change on population performance, both via direct effects on demographic rates and via effects mediated by biotic interactions.
