Broadly, I am fascinated by the roles that predators have in structuring communities and affecting ecosystem processes. From my past experiences, I have developed an interest in questions rooted deeply in ecological theory that transcend a specific taxa or system.  For my PhD research, I will focus on on how top predators – including alligators and sharks in the Florida Coastal Everglades – can influence ecosystems through stimulating bottom-up processes or transforming the physical environment.  Ultimately, I hope that my research will address conservation challenges and mitigate the vulnerability of predators in altered landscapes due to global climate change or anthropogenic pressures.
