Research Interests

Quantitative ecology, wildlife ecology, spatio-temporal modeling, statistical ecology, computational statistics, disease ecology, structured decision making, adaptive management, decision making under uncertainty

My specific research interests are driven by understanding the effects of environmental stressors and disturbances on ecological populations and communities and by making conservation and management decisions in the face of such uncertainty. My research can be broadly classified into two main areas: (1) making conservation and management decisions in the face of uncertainty, and (2) identifying the underlying mechanisms and responses of ecological systems to environmental stressors and disturbances. The connecting thread between both research areas is the development and application of quantitative methods to solve real world problems.
