I am an evolutionary ecologist investigating how biotic interactions interact with environmental variation to shape population and community dynamics, and evolutionary responses. I test ecological and evolutionary theory using laboratory and field experiments with freshwater zooplankton communities, and with insects and their parasites. My goal is to build a predictive framework for understanding how communities respond ecologically and evolutionarily to rapid environmental change. See more here. email: mtseng(at)zoology.ubc.ca
