Research projects in the lab are broadly centred on plant-insect ecology and evolution, and I expect students to develop their own questions within that realm or work on some independent aspect of ongoing projects. If you are contacting me about a position in the lab or joining the graduate school at UBC, please tell me about your research interests/experience and your future directions.

I expect all eligible people in my lab to apply for independent and competitive funding. See the information below to give yourself an idea of what funding sources may be available to you. I am happy to discuss developing proposals together as well.
