Research interests

Over the course of my PhD I will be investigating how biodiversity has changed over recent decades in response to climate warming. In addition to relating how the quantity of biodiversity has changed (e.g. species richness, species abundance) I am interested in how the quality of biodiversity has also changed (e.g. biotic homogenization, community thermal tolerance change). Specifically, I aim to characterize how the vulnerability of communities has been altered in response to temperature changes and address whether rapidly warming regions of the globe are showing greatest changes in biodiversity. This PhD will use a macroecological approach to understand biodiversity change, and a collation of global scale datasets with broad spatio-temporal coverage will help address key challenges in ecological theory and conservation.
