Education:

  • B.S. 2006 - Rangeland, Watershed, and Wildlife Resources with emphasis in Wildlife Science, minor in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, University of Arizona
  • M.S. 2011 - Wildlife and Fisheries Biology, University of Montana
  • Ph.D. 2014 - Biology, Universit√© Laval
  • Postdoctoral 2014-2018 - University of Wyoming

Research Interests:

I study how the movement of animals relates to environmental heterogeneity and change, and how these interactions scale to population- and landscape-level ecological processes. While I have research experience ranging from sexual selection in birds to interference competition between carnivores, my primary research foci include migration ecology, fitness consequences of behavior, how cognition and innovation influence foraging behavior, and conservation and management of large mammals.
