About me

lisecomteI am currently a postdoc in the Olden Research Lab in the School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences at the University of Washington. Although I consider myself as a freshwater ecologist, my research interests are diverse and span well beyond streams and rivers!

My main focus is to understand why species occur where they do, and what makes them vulnerable to global environmental changes. Specifically, my research combines both ecological and evolutionary theories to study the processes shaping species niches and the fluctuations in geographical range limits through space and time. I am also interested in the application of this knowledge to inform conservation and management and better anticipate biodiversity responses in a rapidly changing world.
