I am broadly interested in the mechanisms of species range limitations and how disturbance (climate change and habitat fragmentation) influences species distribution patterns and extinction processes. My research focuses on: the behavioral, physiological, and morphological limitations of parrot distributions; the ecology, biogeography, and assembly of vertebrate communities; and extinction in parrots and parasites.
