About the Lab

My research  interest is in quantitative population ecology, with a particular emphasis on understanding the dynamics of fish and wildlife populations. My studies at the Population Ecology Lab focus on individual and population level processes because I believe a deeper knowledge of these processes will lead to a deeper understanding of how the environment affects ecological processes.
