About

I study the basic organizational principles underlying ecological and evolutionary systems using interdisciplinary approaches from biology, physics, mathematics, and computer science. Common keywords in my papers are: community ecology, population biology, infectious diseases, biodiversity research, climate change, environmental forcing, stochastic birth-death processes, non-linear interactions, self-organization, and complex systems.
