Research Interests: 

Quantifying the effects of land management practices on the abundance and distribution of vertebrates as a result of habitat change. Land management activities including forest management and development have local effects and can have cumulative impacts on habitat availability for terrestrial vertebrates. Considering the potential impacts on biodiversity prior to taking a management action can help to minimize adverse effects of management and identify key areas for habitat restoration.
