Assistant Research Professor, Institute of the Environment

Current Research Interests:
I am a tropical ecologist interested in using community and population-level attributes to evaluate the responses of natural and managed ecosystems to human-caused environmental changes.
My research focuses on combining data-driven empirical approaches with theoretical modeling to assess the population dynamics and conservation status of plant communities as well as to evaluate the impact of biological invasions on natural habitats. I am also interested in addressing fundamental and applied questions in ecology related to animal-plant interactions and the structure, function and dynamics of tropical plant communities.
Current Research Projects:
My current research projects are:
-Pollination Networks on Caribbean Islands.
-Ecology and biogeography of of plant invasions in Central America and the Caribbean.
