I was educated in California (Berkeley & UCLA) and am currently Professor in Biology at Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand. I am broadly interested in the ecology and evolution of birds and plants, but I am particularly fascinated by how organisms evolve on islands and have worked on islands across the globe, including New Zealand, Chatham Islands, the California Islands, New Caledonia and Lord Howe Island.
