My work focuses on island mammals. Islands provide an extreme condition of habitat reduction and isolation. Island species offer an excellent opportunity to study the evolutionary consequences of environmental change, because isolation entails significant changes in climate, resources and community context. To date, I have mostly worked on rodent species, although more recent research now includes a broader range of terrestrial mammals.
