Research interests:

My interests are varied, but I am especially interested in wildlife resource selection and partioning. I am also very interested in the growing field of urban/suburban wildlife management and see the local area as an excellent site to study the impacts of urban sprawl on wildlife and their habitat (as well as the occasional impact of the wildlife on their new human neighbors). Recently, I have become interested in international resource management and I am examining ways to involve students in international experiences.
