I am an ecologist interested in the study of biological invasions. Invasions provide us the possibilities of testing many ecological and evolutionary theories, and they give us the possibility of applying ecological knowledge to the management of these serious threats. Invasive species can also provide crucial information to understand and face other global challenges such as climate change. These theoretical and applied challenges are what fascinate me about the study of invasions.
Some more specific research interest include: What are the impacts of Tree Invasion into treeless areas? How belowground organisms influence ecological processes? How changes in plant chemistry affect the process of plant invasion? How can we reduce the negative impacts of invasions?
