I am interested in how ecological patterns and processes change across spatial, temporal, and taxonomic scales. I use this theoretical framework as a way to effectively compare modern and fossil ecological data, both of which exist at very different scales. I study modern and Plio-Pleistocene large mammals from East Africa, specifically in the context of human evolution.
I am currently working on building a species-time-area-relationship model using modern large mammal data from Amboseli National Park, Kenya to predict Pleistocene large mammal richness from the Koobi Fora Formation, Kenya.
As a part of ETE, I am currently working on whether climate influences pairwise associations of plant genera through time during the Pleistocene-Holocene.
Contour plots showing how richness changes as a function of area, time, and taxonomic level. These plots were created using large mammal skeletal data from Amboseli National Park, southern Kenya.
