Research Focus

We leverage recent advances in quantitative techniques and the increasing availability of large datasets to investigate major socioecological conservation challenges, particularly how various aspects of invasion (i.e. the invader itself, the recipient system and drivers of invasion) operate at broad spatiotemporal scales and across scales.

Current research topics include forecasting invasions through species traits, the roles of different types of diversity on invasibility, and cross-taxonomic resistance to invasive pests. We also specialize in big-literature reviews and automated content analysis techniques.
