Research

I have research experience in conservation biology, ecology and evolution. Recently-completed projects have been related to avian demography, behavior, and phylogeography. My current projects include studies of predator behavior and developing spatially-explicit population models. I also have experience in plant community ecology, ecological restoration and mammalian ecology.
