Research Interests:
Current research in my lab spans the disciplines of ecology, evolution, behavior and conservation biology and diverse taxa including birds, mammals, and herpetofauna. My main focus is understanding the processes and factors that influence wildlife-habitat relationships. I am particularly interested in understanding why organisms select particular habitats and under what contexts such choices are adaptive. My philosophy is that effective conservation and management strategies require careful study and elucidation about what constitutes actual habitat quality for species of interest at multiple scales. My research has also focused on habitat fragmentation, broad-scale life history patterns, and avian parental care strategies.
