Applied ecology, endangered species management and conservation, adaptive management, population modeling, ornithology (particularly shorebirds and coastal birds).

My work focuses on conservation and management decision support science. I work primarily on endangered species and birds, especially shorebirds, using the tools of population and ecological modeling to predict the effects of management actions on populations of interest.
