My lab studies the causes, consequences, and maintenance of biological diversity. Our research integrates studies on (1) how interactions between species evolve and persist, (2) what factors promote and constrain microevolutionary processes, (3) how interactions structure multispecies communities, and (4) which mechanisms promote the long-term maintenance of biological diversity. Our work combines theoretical explorations of these themes with experimental and observational studies. Although we have used a variety of study systems, most of our work is conducted using damselflies (predatory aquatic insects).
