Research Interests / Specializations:
Ecology, land use change, conservation, human-wildlife conflict
My focus is on the role of humans within ecological systems. My research lies at the intersection of policy and management decisions that affect community ecology, landscape ecology, wildlife behavioral responses, and conservation in the face of land use change. My dissertation is on land use change at an agricultural frontier and its effects on wildlife structure, occupancy, and behavioral responses.
