My research focuses on linking population dynamics to environmental drivers using structured population models. Working with long-term data on animal and plant populations, am particularly interested in exploring interactive effects of climatic and land-use drivers on population viability. I am also keen on investigating potential evolutionary consequences of environmental change.

Currently, I am exploring the power of integral projection models in predicting the population dynamics of several animal species. I am also working on comparative demographic approaches, testing how strongly populations respond to the patterning of environmental states.
