My research has two general areas of focus. The first is on waterfowl and wetland ecology and the second is on landscape analysis in support of conservation. Most recently in the waterfowl/wetland ecology area I participated in a project intended to help biologists evaluate the wetland bird use of impounded versus non-impounded wetlands in Michigan’s coastal wetlands. My work in landscape analysis has focused on creating large scale conservation plans that help to establish priorities for stewardship and conservation programs for a variety of conservation concerns.
