Research Interests: 

I am interested in the ecology, evolution, and conservation of north temperate and neotropical animals, especially in relation to issues of human-induced habitat degradation and restoration. I prefer not focus on a particular group of organisms, but on a common theme: how species' ecological characteristics and the movements of individuals influence population and community level responses to habitat alteration and/or management actions.

Other areas of interest include population and community ecology, prairie ecology and restoration, insect ecology and conservation, endangered species conservation, aquatic ecology and conservation, international conservation, ecological economics, and environmental policy.
