Biography

I am an ecologist interested in various aspects of the diversity of life. My research seeks to answer the following questions. Where are the most species-rich regions of the world? How can some regions sustain thousands of species while others have only a few dozen? Were today’s most diverse regions as diverse 10, 50, or 100 million years ago? Do different groups of organisms follow the same diversity patterns?  What effects have human changes on species richness and composition?

These “basic” questions are still poorly understood today, despite the fact that we live in a biodiversity crisis where species go extinct daily.

To address these questions, I study some of the most fascinating and ecologically important organisms: ants!  In the following pages, I introduce aspects of my research on large-scale patterns of ant diversity, community ecology, biological invasion, behavioral ecology, and foraging ecology. I also present some of my interests in community outreach and macro photography.

I am currently an Assistant Professor at the School of Biological Sciences at the University of Hong Kong. Previously, I did my PhD with Dr. Rob Dunn at North Carolina State University and a Post-doc in Dr. Evan Economo’s laboratory on the beautiful campus of OIST.
