I am broadly interested in wildlife-habitat relationships, and animal movement, with a goal towards understanding how these processes are impacted by anthropogenic disturbance. In addition, I am interested in what life history strategies make wildlife species resilient to disturbance. Much of my research is quantitative in nature, and I am particularly interested in applying statistical models to management and conservation issues.
I am a PhD student in the Department of Fish, Wildlife and Conservation Biology at Colorado State University. I am conducting my PhD research on the behavioral response of mule deer to energy development in the Piceance basin in Northwestern Colorado. I obtained my BS degree in Biology in 2005 from Bates College and my MSc degree in Ecology from the University of Alberta in 2010. In my free time I enjoy skiing, hiking, fishing, and hunting.
