My research interests lie at the interface of community and quantitative ecology, incorporating principles from a diverse suite of areas including spatial ecology, landscape ecology, ecomorphology and evolution. I work to determine how different factors such as species level-traits (e.g., morphology, dispersal capacity, life history, phenotypic integration, evolutionary relationships), habitat choice, landscape structure and species interactions contribute to how regional pools of potential colonizer species are sorted into local communities. I combine observational studies, experimental approaches, data synthesis and quantitative frameworks to understand the relative roles of these factors in structuring communities across aquatic landscapes, involving a variety of organism types. Currently, my research program is centred on the following themes:

1) Ecological forces driving aquatic metacommunities: local and landscape processes structuring fish communities; the relationship between morphology, dispersal capacity and metacommunity dynamics; behavioural aspectc affecting fish movement.
2) Phenotypic integration and plasticity in fishes: the influence of swimming demand on phenotypes, distribution and movement capability; the influence of environmental factors affecting movement.
3) Quantitative frameworks for assessing factors structuring communities: spatial and dispersal modelling; analytical frameworks for studying metacommunities.
4) Quantitative Ecology and biostatistics: tests for assessing the association of multivariate data tables; assessing the performance of analytical techniques and building quantitative frameworks for testing ecological hypotheses.
