Dr. Mahon’s research focuses on the temporal dynamics and spatial structuring of ecological communities. In particular, he is interested in how land-use, climate, and biotic factors drive patterns of terrestrial biodiversity and community assembly. His approach employs field-based experiments in terrestrial communities and quantitative approaches and statistical modeling of biodiversity and communities across local to regional scales.
Dr. Mahon received his Ph.D. from Miami University in 2019. He joins ND-ECI under the mentorship of Dr. Jason Rohr.
