Research Interests

My research interests lie in the field of evolutionary ecology.  I am interested in how natural selection, resulting from positive interactions (e.g., plant-pollinator) and negative interactions, (e.g., plant-pathogen) influences patterns of phenotypic variation and reproductive success in flowering plants.  I am currently focusing on the role that enemy-mediated natural selection plays in causing successful biological invasions.  Research carried out by undergraduate and graduate students in my lab is conducted on Georgia's coastal plain, at several other North American sites, and in Europe.
