As a field biologist, my research addresses questions about how anthropogenic
change reshapes ecological processes. I am interested in how species invasions and climate change affect individuals, population dynamics, species interactions, and ecological communities. Phenology is a pervasive theme throughout my research (see Research and CV for more information). I accept graduate students
through a joint program in Plant Biology and Conservation between the Chicago
Botanic Garden and Northwestern University. Please contact me if you are
interested in joining the Iler Lab!
