Departmental Profile
Research Interests
My work generally focuses on the ecology and management of wildlife populations. Specifically, I am interested in predator-prey dynamics and the movement ecology of both game and non-game animals. I also have extensive experience supervising and conducting research in the arena of conservation as applied to threatened and rare species. Nearly all of my work in this arena has been focused on large, charismatic mammals such as the Louisiana black bear and the red wolf. This research necessarily involves not only the biological underpinnings of the species involved, but also the synthesis of many other disciplines equally relevant to long-term sustainability of the species and the socio-ecological systems in which they reside.
