Welcome! I explore the interaction between environmental change and biotic response. My projects are diverse and range from animal, plant, and soil systems in terrestrial to marine environments. There are often elements of temporal and spatial variation with the consideration of climate change. Most of my projects involve stable isotope analysis, which are transformed via physiology. The best summary of my research group is "diverse" - in terms of the science and scientists.
I am in the Department of Life and Environmental Sciences at University of California Merced. If you're interested in joining my lab or have any questions, feel free to email me at skim380(at)ucmerced.edu.
