Biography

I am from Canada with a B.Sc. from University of Guelph (Ontario), M.Sc. from University of Reading (UK), and Ph.D. from University of Alberta. Areas of interest include large mammal ecology and management, vertebrate population dynamics, reintroduction and conservation ecology, and Bayesian methods.
