I study how phenotypic traits and trait evolution determine predator-prey interactions and, through these, the structure and dynamics of complex networks of interacting species like food webs. I'm also interested in how these effects are mediated by the spatial structure of interacting species and changes in environmental conditions. To do so, I use a combination of mathematical models and computational methods, as well as empirical data from laboratory experiments and public data across systems and taxa.
