My primary research interests include understanding the effects of abiotic and biotic factors on wildlife communities and populations. I and my students examine changes to wildlife resulting from various human activities including invasive plants, altered disturbance regimes, and changes in land use. We work on a diversity of taxa, based on the ecological question of interest.
I teach mammalogy and the capstone course in fish and wildlife ecology and management at the undergraduate level, as well as a graduate course in wildlife-habitat relationships.
