Terrestrial community ecology, with a particular focus on trophic interactions in both below- and aboveground invertebrate communities. My research centres on three major topics:
- Global change ecology – impacts of drivers such as land use and climate change on community structure and ecosystem functioning.
- Food web ecology – using energy flux in food webs to understand ecological impacts of environmental change.
- Biodiversity and ecosystem functioning – investigating the relationship between biodiversity and ecological processes in multi-trophic systems.
See my Google Scholar page for a full list of publications.
