Angélica L. González is an Assistant Professor at Rutgers University. Dr. González is a broadly-trained ecologist with interests that range from organismal traits to community and ecosystem ecology. Much of her research is concerned with the effects of natural and human-induced environmental changes on the diversity, composition and function of communities and ecosystems. Drawing from general principles, she aims to develop a more integrated understanding of ecological systems. Her work combines theory, observations, experiments, and data synthesis approaches in order to predict ecological patterns and processes across space and time.
Research Areas: Biodiversity, Ecological Stoichiometry, Biogeochemistry, Trait-based Ecology, Functional Biogeography, Food Webs, Paleoecology, Environmental Change
