Research Interests:

My research focuses on biogeography, geomorphology, forestry, and soils, where I am interested in understanding the patterns, processes, and reciprocal interactions that exist in, and between the biosphere, pedosphere, and lithosphere. Central to my research interests are the spatiotemporal and scale dimensions of biological invasion, soil variability, ecological heterogeneity, threatened and endangered species habitat, and biophysical pattern-process dynamics.
