Research Interests
My research focuses on developing solutions for real world conservation problems through linking ecological field data to rigorous quantitative models at landscape scales. Because the applied nature of my research demands understanding systems from many angles, I work at the intersection of many ecological disciplines, including landscape, population, quantitative, behavioral, and restoration ecology. I work primarily with birds and reptiles, often looking at how behavior can affect population persistence in dynamic landscapes. In the southeastern US, I am studying how bird and reptile populations will be affected by a changing climate, both as a function of habitat loss and degradation and through direct changes to population dynamics.
