My research focuses on integrating nutrition, population, and quantitative ecology to understand behavior, resource allocation, and life history in an effort to reveal the mechanisms underpinning fitness and population dynamics of large mammals.  I strive to keep my research program grounded within a strong conceptual framework that builds on ecological theory, and importantly, informs on-the-ground management efforts.  Although my approach to research varies according to study needs, I often employ fairly intensive field studies with longitudinal monitoring of life history and nutritional status of individual animals.  Much of my current work is centered on establishing a protocol for habitat-based, sustainable management of ungulate populations, while investigating the effects of predation, climate change, and novel disturbance through the lens of nutrition.
