I am an ecologist with interested in the behaviour, population dynamics, and conservation of animals. I address these topics with both field experiments and observational data and by drawing on diverse techniques, such as stable isotope chemistry, mark-recapture approaches, and ecological modeling. Although much of my research tests and advances classical theory, it also supports management decisions for conservation problems arising from global change. Currently, I am using Bayesian hierarchical models to understand population trends of migratory shorebirds along the East Asian-Australasian flyway. Results of these analyses will help optimize habitat protection across the flyway and inform offset strategies for migratory animals. I am a member of Dr Richard Fuller's lab.
