I am a research scientist at Stanford University, where I study ecological and environmental change over long time frames, with an emphasis on anthropogenic changes over the last ~500 years.  My research synthesizes modern, historic, and paleoecologic records to study how diversity and abundance have changed through time in response to past environmental changes.  My field work includes small mammal mark-recapture surveys, excavation of packrat middens, and collection of lake cores to reconstruct past biodiversity and environment.
