Current Research

1- Developing novel ecosystems that optimize carbon storage, native biodiversity, and human mobility in lowland Hawaiian forests.

2- Measures of community-level functional diversity, along a ‘novelty gradient’ in Hawaiian Lowland Wet Forests

Research Interests

I am interested in a wide range of topics, from species traits within and across communities, to plant-animal interactions, to long-term ecological dynamics on a landscape scale and the resilience of socio-ecological systems.
