Important knowledge gaps remain in our understanding of the processes underlying biological invasions, despite an extensive body of research dedicated to this phenomenon. Highly-debated topics in invasion ecology could benefit from a macroecological perspective.  In the MEC Lab, we aim to provide novel insights into highly-debated invasion questions by approaching these questions through a macroecological lens. We use a broad variety of statistical and computational methods and large datasets to study continental-scale and cross-scale processes of invasion, as well as of other socioecological conservation challenges.

WE'RE HIRING! If you're interested in being a postdoc in the MEC Lab, please contact Dr. Nunez-Mir via email (gnm@uic.edu).
