My research focuses on how and why populations fluctuate across time and space. I use a blend of field experiments, analyses of spatiotemporal datasets, and theoretical modeling. I am particularly interested in understanding the factors influencing the spatial synchrony, cyclicity, and severity of forest-insect outbreaks.
