Welcome! Our lab investigates how biotic and abiotic factors shape rapid adaptation in ecological communites. We test ecological and evolutionary theory using laboratory and field experiments with freshwater communities, and with insects and their parasites. Our goal is to build a predictive framework for understanding how communities respond ecologically and evolutionarily to rapid environmental change. See more here.
