I am interested in how terrestrial ecosystems respond to anthropogenically driven changes, particularly interactions between invasive species, land use and climate change. I aim to improve forecasting of future changes to ecosystems, particularly risks of non-native plant invasions, using tools from biogeography and landscape ecology. My research has implications for invasion ecology, natural resource management and biological conservation.
Biogeography of invasive plants in the continental U.S.
Predicting range shifts of invasive species with climate change
Applications of remote sensing to habitat modeling and invasive plant detection
Links between invasive plants and disturbance at landscape scales
