Biogeography and spatial ecology of terrestrial plant invasions
I am interested in how terrestrial ecosystems respond to land use and anthropogenic climate change. I use tools including remote sensing and geospatial analysis to identify drivers of land cover change and model risk based on land use and future climate scenarios. My research is currently focused on projecting risk from non-native plant invasion under global change scenarios, largely species invading deserts of the Western U.S.
