Research in the Warren lab focuses on the impacts of global change (species invasion, land fragmentation and climate) on ecological systems. Often the study system is eastern deciduous forests and the study organisms are ants or plant, but there is no particular fidelity to any system or organism. A common theme is investigation into the correspondence between niche and distribution. We research what drives species distributions and how interactions with other species and habitats shape those patterns. These are big questions and we like big answers.
Please contact me if you are interested in working in the lab (but make sure to prepare by reading relevant literature, e.g., publications). Students in the lab are expected to meet agreed upon deadlines, produce publishable data and play nicely with others. A fondness for raucous music, craft beer and zombie movies helps.
