Matthew Austin

Biodiversity Postdoctoral Fellow, Living Earth Collaborative

I am a pollination ecologist who studies how pollination systems are affected by changing environments. At WashU, I am studying how climate change affects the time of year that plant species bloom, and how this in turn affects the ecology and evolution of plant-pollinator communities.

I aim to better understand changes in the global water cycle during the past 2000 years. This will help us to understand the response of the water cycle to future global climate changes.
