My area of expertise is the ecology and management of wildlife populations. Much of my research and management experience has been with migratory game birds, especially American woodcock and Canada geese. However, my interests are fairly broad and I am, or have been, the thesis advisor for students involved with research on beaver ecology, island biogeography of small mammals, the impact of human trail use on avian communities, relationships between site-level and landscape-level habitat features and forest songbird communities, surveys for secretive marsh birds, and myrmecophagy by black bears.
