Personal Summary

My research interests broadly lie in connecting wildlife movement and nutrition to management and conservation on the larger landscape. As an undergraduate, I was a ranger at the University of Wisconsin-Madison Arboretum and technician in a university biochemistry lab. I found my way west on a bike, where I have conducted research across Montana and other western states.  My work has spanned diverse habitats including northern forests, tallgrass prairie, desert, sagebrush steppe, and lab benches, and my research has focused on a range of species from elk and mule deer to insects and muskoxen.  My current Masters research is in collaboration with Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks, focused on nutritional ecology of mule deer in three study areas in Montana.
