Research Emphasis:

Our lab studies the effects of land use change, agricultural practices, and forest management on population dynamics. We rely heavily on theory from spatial ecology and tools such as hierarchical models to understand how these processes affect population viability. A central aim of our work is provide reliable information to support science-based conservation efforts.
