Welcome! Here in the O’Dwyer lab we are interested in modeling and analysis of complex ecological communities. These systems are typically heterogeneous, display non-equilibrium phenomena, are strongly interacting, noisy, and adapt over time. We bring together theory, experiment, and empirical data to try to understand how ecological processes drive the patterns of species and organisms we see in nature.
