Forest Animal Ecology Lab


I am an animal ecologist with research interests that extend into the fields of animal behavior, physiological ecology, and conservation science. The research questions I pursue are grounded in both basic and applied principles, and nearly all are investigated through empirical field studies of wild populations in forested ecosystems. Some of my current projects include studies that are examining bee community response to biofuel harvest, testing the demographic response of early seral birds to herbicides, and evaluating the impacts of supplemental feeding on the behavior and physiology of songbirds.
