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.
