I am a postdoctoral researcher currently working with Dr. Peter Hambäck at Stockholm University, Stockholm, Sweden. I am investigating cross-ecosystem effects on ecological networks using Baltic Sea shoreline food webs as a study system. In particular, I am interested in how changes in the marine environment affect the diets of terrestrial top predators.
Previously, I worked with Dr. Anna Eklöf as a postdoctoral researcher at Linköping University, Linköping, Sweden. Our research used 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 completed my PhD in 2016, working with Dr. Daniel Stouffer at the University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand. My thesis research dealt with food webs and other ecological networks, and answering 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.
