The aim of my research is to understand community assembly in human-dominated ecosystems with the ultimate goal of informing sustainable landscape design. My research focuses on understanding how human activities, namely habitat modification and the introduction of species, affect species dispersal, habitat selection, and species interactions. In addition, I research how the composition of species in a community affects ecosystem functioning and ecosystem services. I use a combination of field surveys, experiments, genetic techniques, and modeling to address these research questions in a variety of taxonomic groups mainly in the Caribbean region and southeastern Pennsylvania.
