I am an ecologist interested in how we can best restoration natural ecosystems to support native biodiversity and functionality. I approach restoration ecology through the coupling of natural history, basic ecological theory, and applied problem solving. Much of my research entails long-term experimental studies to understand the processes structuring restoration outcomes and test basic ecological questions in tallgrass prairies, oak savannas, and longleaf pine ecosystems. Along the way, I study a variety of topics including: community assembly, habitat fragmentation, biodiversity-ecosystem function relationships, fire ecology, plant-animal interactions, landscape corridors, and agricultural land-use legacies.
