Personal profile


I am a community and landscape ecologist seeking to understand 1) how biodiverse communities provide ecosystem services and 2) how these species and services are affected by the way we manage and use land. To do this, I combine field-based experiments with economic valuations, ecological models, and theory to unpack the tradeoffs that characterize complex socio-ecological systems.

I earned a PhD with Taylor Ricketts at the University of Vermont where I investigated how agricultural landscapes and management affect ecosystem services and agricultural yields. I followed this with postdoctoral work with Neal Williams at the University of California Davis. I am now a postdoc in Maj Rundlöf's group at Lund University working on pollination ecology, landscape ecotoxicology and ecological modeling in agricultural landscapes. Together with Jessica Knapp, we are part of a FORMAS funded project that aims to develop pesticide risk assessment for bees at landscape scales.
