Profile

The goal of my research is to understand what drives the distribution, abundance, and coexistence of species in ecological communities. I use experimental and observational approaches to understand how patterns of community assembly, coexistence, and diversity are altered by human-induced changes to the environment. For the past few years, I have been investigating how anthropogenic stressors such as salinization, climate change, and invasive species affect freshwater environments. This fall and winter I will be investigating if road salts increase the risk of heavy metal contamination in private drinking wells in New Jersey.
