My research focuses on understanding the distribution, abundance, and demographics of wildlife populations and on processes that drive those patterns. I focus on applying ecological theory to questions of conservation and management relevance.


I have no current teaching assignments. In the past, I have taught ornithology, ecology, and field botany. I am available to serve on graduate degree committees.
