Process-driven predictive ecology of resource-use conflicts:
Behavioral ecology
Applied ecology
Agent-based modeling
Scenario planning
Human dimensions of wildlife
Geographic information systems

Research Interests:

In my lab we investigate the cumulative effects of multiple stressors on the adaptive decisions of wildlife. We use this information to explore spatial and demographic patterns under future scenarios, using a combination of field and modeling approaches. To strengthen the predictive framework, we ensure the scenarios are guided by social and/or spatial systems. This foundation allows us to evaluate how impacts can ultimately affect the persistence of wildlife populations.
