My research interests fall under the disciplines of macroecology, community ecology and theoretical ecology. I'm interested in quantifying biodiversity and in understanding the processes that shape it. My work spans across scales, from quantifying biodiversity change in the entire planet, to mm scale individual interactions on coral reefs. I use a range of tools in my research, including ecoinformatics and synthesis of ecological data, quantitative and theoretical models, as well as field observations. The field component of my work is usually on coral reefs, and I have a long term field site in Lizard Island, on the Northern Great Barrier Reef.
