We seek to understand how evolution and ecology interact to change population dynamics and species interactions in space and time. Much of our research is focused on plants in temperate savannas and grasslands, and the herbivores that eat them. Our current work combines experiments and observational studies in the field with mathematical models to investigate the eco-evolutionary dynamics of how quickly populations can expand their ranges, and to address how plants in the endangered Garry oak ecosystem will respond to changes in rainfall. We’re located in the Geography Department at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada, where we gather on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territory of the xwməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam) People. We are also active members of the Biodiversity Research Centre.
