Aquatic and Insect Ecology and Evolutionary Biology

  • ​​We investigate the effect of changing environments on insect and aquatic communities
  • We use field and laboratory experiments, syntheses of published literature, and natural history collections to investigate ecological and evolutionary responses to climate and habitat change
  • Our work is grounded in ecological and evolutionary theory and we tackle both basic and applied questions
