Research

Biotic response to environmental change is my research theme. I have studied fossil and modern ecosystems, focusing on biotic interactions like predator-prey dynamics, community structure and turnover, and mass extinctions. I also look at the effects of spatial and temporal scale on detecting biotic response. My recent research is on the long-term effects of biotic and abiotic stressors on modern intertidal communities in the Pacific Northwest, as well as extinction and recovery in fossil snail communities from the Florida Gulf coast.
