Introduction
My research interests lie in furthering our understanding of​ the mechanisms influencing species' responses to climate change at both the local and regional scales. My current projects examines the direct and indirect effects of climate change on a range of montane species spanning mammals, birds, and beetles. I am also interested in exploring new methods that we can use to more robustly predict imminent range shifts and local extinctions.

Article
Full-text available
Accounting for within-species variability in the relationship between occurrence and climate is essential to forecasting species’ responses to climate change. Few climate-vulnerability assessments explicitly consider intraspecific variation, and those that do typically assume that variability is best explained by genetic affinity. Here, we evaluate...
Article
Full-text available
Species are frequently responding to contemporary climate change by shifting to higher elevations and poleward to track suitable climate space. However, depending on local conditions and species’ sensitivity, the nature of these shifts can be highly variable and difficult to predict. Here, we examine how the American pika (Ochotona princeps), a phi...
