Personal Summary

My main interests comprise wildlife management and conservation through research and field work. Primary avenues of my investigation revolve around reintroduction biology and the influence of translocation on: animal movement and habitat selection, behavioral and physiological stress response, population dynamics and conservation genetics. Population restoration is an increasingly common tactic in wildlife conservation and becoming even more prevalent as climate, land use and habitat availability continue to shift. I am working on elk restoration to the Missouri Ozarks under Dr. Josh Millspaugh throughout my tenure here at UM.
