Our research focuses on how the nutritional composition of resource inputs influences ecological interactions in invertebrate communities. A common theme through our projects is the importance of nutrient balance and how particular nutrient scarcities or excesses affect ecological processes.
The Biology Department at the University of St. Thomas emphasizes impact research that involves undergraduates in important roles. We value the indirect effects of research productivity on undergraduate education, but we also have close faculty-student collaborations that are the hallmark of undergraduate institutions. I am always interested in new ideas for research-teaching synergies that make life at an undergraduate school fulfilling.
