Research Interests:
My research focuses on understanding and investigating wildlife associations with habitat and specifically, responses to habitat fragmentation. I use both applied and theoretical approaches to study wildlife ecology including a variety of field methods, stable isotope analysis, respirometry, measurements of fine-scale movements and perceptual range, and modeling. I place a strong emphasis on making connections between scientific research and wildlife management. Improving science education and communication for K-12 students and teachers, undergraduate and graduate students, and the general public are incorporated into my academic pursuits and include involvement in science outreach, teacher professional development programs, STEM education research, and wildlife projects engaging citizen scientists.
