Research Projects

Below are details on different areas of my research. I work on mathematical descriptions of ecological applications. I am especially interested in insect populations, and how how model choice or parameterization affects ecological understanding.


  • Predator competition in systems with seasonal birth (sole PI, $192,908 NSF Award #2137694)
  • Advancing biodiversity research to support transdisciplinary conservation innovation in Texas' ecosystems (investigator led by Scott Longing, $249,368 from TTU Davis College)
  • Math & Ecology Synthesis for Agriculture (MESA) Network (co-PI led by Matt Barnes, $50,000 from TTU Davis College)
