I am a conservation biologist and wildlife ecologist with broad interests in using science to inform biodiversity conservation, environmental management, and human-wildlife coexistence. My recent work has focused primarily on the ecology, management and monitoring of terrestrial mammal communities in the transforming landscapes of western Canada, and I maintain diverse research interests in ecological methodology, carnivore conservation, and human-wildlife relations.
