Integrative trait-based ecology
My work links ecology, evolution, and the environment through traits. I'm currently a postdoc in Jean-Philippe Gibert's lab at Duke.

We have developed a method to more accurately map productivity at the landscape scale in high resolution by combining remote-sensing data and trait-based metabolic theory. Check it out at Ecography!
PROTISTS IN THE NEWS!

Our recent protist research was featured on the evening news today here in North Carolina!
ECOLOGY ACROSS SCALES
Oct. 19, 2021
New work by our great team in the Gibert Lab (mostly students) scales up from traits to predict temperature effects across levels of organization—from populations to ecosystems. Out now in PNAS!
FOOD WEB STRUCTURE
Apr. 14, 2021
My first paper with Jean-Philippe Gibert examines how "forbidden links" constrain connectivity in food webs.

Our new paper in Science Advances uses remote-sensing data to understand diversity-area relationships. Nice job Sandra et al.!
CLIMATE, CARBON, & MICROBES
Nov. 8, 2019
The Gibert Lab has been awarded a Department of Energy grant to study the impacts of climate change and microbial food web dynamics on carbon storage in Sphagnum moss ecosystems.
MOVED TO DUKE!
Nov. 1, 2019
I've started a new postdoc at Duke with Jean Philippe Gibert! We'll be working on food webs and eco-evolutionary dynamics in microbes.
Oct. 18, 2019
Our recent paper about the bimodality of size distributions in food webs was recommended by Faculty of 1000!
