GENERAL INTERESTS: I am a broadly trained ecologist whose research lies at the intersection of animal behavior, ecology, and conservation. My research focuses on North American waterfowl, which are arguably the best studied group of birds in the world and a model system for wildlife management. The massive knowledge base accumulated for waterfowl is not only vital for informing harvest management and conservation, but I would also argue that it allows us to ask ecological questions that are too broad to or too nuanced to be answered in other systems. In general, I am interested in projects that attempt to link processes (e.g., the behavior of individual animals) to the population- and community-level patterns that are relevant for waterfowl management.
