Research Interests: Mesoscale ecology, the population and community dynamics of wildlife and their interactions the natural and agricultural ecosystem processes.
Brief description of current research:
My work centers on the dynamics of animal populations and their interactions with other animal and plant species. I am particularly interested in scaling up from the ecology of individual animals to the dynamics of communities in spatially and temporally complex environments and the role of wildlife in managing ecosystem function and services.
