Our lab uses theories and principles in ecology and conservation science to sustain and restore biodiversity in urban ecosystems. We work to understand how urban environments – both the physical and social – shape species distributions, populations, communities, and behaviors. Through our research, we hope to better understand fundamental ecological processes in urban ecosystems and apply this knowledge to future urban planning. Our goal is to provide evidence-based solutions that simultaneously conserve biological diversity and improve the lives of urban residents.
