I am interested in how terrestrial ecosystems respond to anthropogenically driven changes, particularly interactions between invasive species, land use and climate change. I aim to improve forecasting of future changes to ecosystems, particularly risks of non-native plant invasions, using tools from biogeography and landscape ecology. My research has implications for invasion ecology, natural resource management and biological conservation.

- Predicting range shifts of invasive species with climate change
- Applications of remote sensing to habitat modeling and invasive plant detection
- Links between invasive plants and disturbance at landscape scales
