Research interests

I aim to understand how anthropogenic change, primarily climate and land-use change, will influence species distributions and the subsequent impacts on species interactions that are vital for ecosystem functions such as pollination. I am currently a ARC DECRA fellow leading a project that aims to link changes in pollinator communities and plant-pollinator networks to plant reproduction.

My work integrates the disciplines of physiology, community ecology and evolutionary history to tease apart the relative importance of direct (habitat change) and cascading (altered species interactions) changes to ecosystems.
