I am interested in the resilience of urban ecosystems, in particular the interactions of native and non-native species.
My primary focus is how birds use urban natural areas, the distribution of Odonata, and the interaction of non-native and native species.
I also have a keen interest in coffee agroforestry systems, and their role in biodiversity.
