Macroecologist working as a research postdoc in Jay Lennon’s microbial ecology lab in the biology dept. at Indiana University, Bloomington. I study general patterns of abundance and diversity across communities representing the diversity of life. In general, I’m most interested in how very different ecological systems are constrained by simple properties of abundance and diversity. I’ve also been known to study population ecology in reptiles, biogeography and ecological theory, genome patterns, and combinatorics.
