Biological communities form from a complex web of interactions among multiple species. Dr. Irwin's lab is interested in the ecology and evolution of multiple-species interactions, pollination biology, and species invasions. Among my research interests are the relative importance of direct and indirect effects of antagonists on the ecology and evolution of plant-pollinator mutualisms, and whether plant interactions with mutualists and antagonists simultaneously shape and constrain selection on nectar traits.

"Cities are microcosms of the evolutionary changes that are occurring on a planetary scale and thus provide a natural laboratory to advance our understanding of eco-evolutionary dynamics in a rapidly urbanizing world."
