Our lab studies how the interactions between species affect the structure and dynamics of ecological communities. We are particularly interested in aquatic systems, both marine and freshwater, and use a combination of observational and experimental approaches to inform and test mathematical models of multispecies interactions. We thereby aim to contribute theory that integrates our understanding of the behaviour of individuals (e.g., predator foraging) with the ecosystem-level consequences of the interacting populations and species they constitute.
Our lab values diversity. We are immigrants and the descendants of immigrants. We are atheists, agnostics, and people of faith. We don’t all look the same, love the same, or share the same heroes. We are scientists.
