Members of the Cottingham Lab explore basic questions in ecology and apply ecological principles to problems in human and environmental health.

We work collaboratively – within the lab and with partners from across Dartmouth and around the globe – and use a variety of tools and approaches in our research.

I’ve been elected to be Member-at-Large of the Ecological Society of America starting at the close of the 100th annual meeting in August 2015.  I’m excited about this chance to serve the Society in a different way, and in particular to tackle issues about diversity in ecology, including ensuring that award nominations and presentations are done in a balanced way.
