Research Interests

My research interests center on the ecology of mammals and applying quantitative methods to management issues.  I am interested in developing criteria that will help wildlife managers prioritize which information to collect concerning their populations and questions of interest.  I am also interested in assessing the costs and benefits of different data collection techniques.  My previous research focused on predicting migration in a white-tailed deer population based on home range attributes and quantifying the effects of this decision on survival and resource use.  I am currently collaborating with the Idaho Department of Fish and Game to develop cost effective methods for monitoring and estimating mule deer populations.
