I am an animal ecologist with research interests that extend into the fields of animal behavior, physiological ecology, and conservation science. The research questions I pursue are grounded in both basic and applied principles, and nearly all are investigated through empirical field studies of wild populations.

Some current projects are evaluating terrestrial habitat use and breeding ecology of the Marbled Murrelet, examining bee community response to wildlife fire and salvage logging, testing the demographic response of early-successional birds to herbicides, and evaluating the impacts of supplemental feeding on the behavior and physiology of songbirds
