I am a postdoctoral researcher working with Dr. Anna Eklöf at Linköping University, Linköping, Sweden. Our research uses species' roles in food webs to better understand how species traits relate to network structure, how species' structural roles relate to their contributions to ecosystem services, and similar questions.
I recently finished a PhD working with Dr. Daniel Stouffer at the University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand. Our research centres around food webs and other ecological networks, and deals with questions like "Do parasites have different effects on community structure than free-living species?", "Can we predict extinction risk based on local food webs?", and "Does food web structure change over latitudinal gradients?". I completed my BSc working with Dr. Tamara Romanuk in 2012.
