Research InterestsI am primarily interested in the ecology and dynamics of wildlife populations, especially in the context of management and conservation problems. I am particularly interested in:
1) Integrating appropriate quantitative analysis of empirical data with ecological theory to better address questions and hypotheses concerning wildlife population dynamics and
2) Integrating scientific research on wildlife populations and ecology with the sustainable use of natural resources.
My current research focuses on the long-term population dynamics of northern spotted owls in northwest California. This study has examined long-term trends in spotted owl populations, life-history strategies, and the effects of climate and habitat variation on fitness. In addition to continuing the work on northern spotted owls, I have also collaborated on estimating survival of North American avian species using band recovery models, and developing a range-wide monitoring program for Mexican spotted owls.
