Baiser Lab of Community Ecology

I am a community ecologist who takes a combined theoretical and empirical approach to understand how ecological communities assemble, change, and collapse. In the course of my research, I have worked with bird, plant, invertebrate, and protozoan communities in exciting locations such as the Florida Everglades, Hawk Mountain Sanctuary, and ombrotrophic bogs across Vermont and Massachusetts.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my wife and daughter, biking, hiking, and birding. When I can't get outside, I enjoy listening to music, attempting to play the keyboard, and following the New York Islanders, Mets, Giants, and Knicks.
