Biography

My research is focused on three primary areas: (1) breeding and foraging ecology of seabirds and shorebirds, (2) wildlife conservation physiology, and (3) wildlife ecology in urban and natural systems. I have conducted research and monitoring programs in a variety of marine and terrestrial ecosystems and have studied both avian and mammalian populations. All of my research has been driven by management and conservation issues, although the results are often of both an applied and basic nature. <br><br>My current and prior work has emphasized wildlife conservation with emphases in marine ornithology, avian ecology, reproductive energetics, foraging ecology, survey design and methodology, and urban ecology.

Teaching Interest

I teach gradaute courses in ecology, wildlife energetics, and analysis of wildlife data
