Quentin also does research in basic ecology. He aims to find patterns in biodiversity and species traits at many levels, from within-species variation at the local scale to variation across large scales of space and time, and to explore the implications of those patterns for how organisms and ecosystems respond to global change.

From 2016 to 2018 Quentin was a postdoctoral researcher at Michigan State University with Phoebe Zarnetske (lab website) and Sydne Record (lab website). In 2016, Quentin completed his PhD at the University of Tennessee, working with Nate Sanders (lab website).
