Our research has two main themes. Our emerging work focuses on “Stewardship Science“, which combines environmental science research with community service. Most of this work involves urban agriculture research. We’re developing multiple projects that test hypotheses about small-scale farming, and each project is designed to make a direct contribution to our local community. Another part of our work focuses on how the nutritional composition of resource inputs influences ecological interactions in invertebrate communities. A common theme through these projects is the importance of nutrient balance and how particular nutrient scarcities or excesses affect ecological processes.
