Post-doctoral Fellow, 2015-2018, Washington University in St. Louis, MO
My research program addresses these questions using a wide range of empirical (e.g. large-scale observational studies, field & greenhouse experiments) and quantitative approaches (e.g. spatially- and temporally-explicit analyses of large datasets, simulation models of population/community dynamics).
