Teaching & Research Focus

I am broadly interested in landscape ecology, biological conservation, and ecosystem services. Specifically, my research has focused on how landscape structure affects pest control services and pollination networks in landscapes dominated by agriculture. Currently, I am working with the UPSCALE project that deals with push-pull agricultural systems in East Africa.
