My research interests are focused primarily on the interactions between forest wildlife communities and human-induced modifications of habitat structure and landscape context across spatial and temporal scales.
I enjoy spending time and laughing heartily with my family and friends, preferably over a fire. Whenever I can, I like to camp, paddle, hike, and bird with them as well. My labmates are a diverse bunch with excellent skills in the kitchen and I rarely miss an opportunity to partake of their cuisine.
