Research Interests

I am interested in patterns of change in pollinator range and interactions. These dynamics are crucial to understand in the context of global change, and are likely influenced by a wide variety of environmental and biological factors. I hope to untangle some of the complexity in interaction change and pollinator biogeography during my PhD.
