My lab conducts applied research in the fields of ethology and conservation investigating topics including habitat–species interactions, predator–prey dynamics, and wildlife ecology and management. We research different levels of animal organization, from physiology to meta-population dynamics, allowing us to gain a better understanding of the multi-scale nature of the processes influencing animal populations. Because the development and implementation of solutions to challenging management problems requires an understanding of stakeholder values, our research is paired with a strong outreach component that enhances communication among scientists, policy-makers, and the public. The goal of my lab is to produce objective findings that inform wildlife management issues and leads to more effective policy decisions.
