Our world is changing faster than ever, posing new ecological challenges to organisms worldwide. My research focusses on how organisms and communities will respond to climate change, connecting three major domains of biology - organismal physiology, community ecology, and evolution. I aim to use classic principles and theory from these fields to push climate change ecology forward. I have worked towards this goal by advancing three interrelated research directions: (1) the biogeography of species’ physiology, (2) studying species’ range shifts under climate change, and (3) measuring evolutionary potential to cope with climate change.

At UBC I aim to study how species interactions will be modified by climate change. I hope to combine metabolic and food web theory to produce testable predictions on how competitive and trophic interactions will be modified in a warming climate. I also aim to be be a useful mentor for graduate students in the Biodiversity Research Centre, so stay tuned or come and find me!
