I am a soil ecologist and earthworm biologist broadly interested in population and community ecology, ecosystem ecology, molecular ecology, phylogenetics, biogeography, and biodiversity. My work focuses on understanding the biodiversity of soil invertebrates, their ecology and interactions in the decomposer subsystem, and the mechanisms through which these organisms mediate the interactions of belowground and aboveground communities in forest, agriculture, and urban ecosystems. Addressing these broad while interconnected topics requires an integrative approach, including, but not limited to, molecular phylogenetics, environmental DNA analysis, stable isotope technique, microbial analysis, and C and N biogeochemistry.
We are recruiting graduate students and technicians! Please feel free to contact me for more details.
