I am a behavioral and cognitive ecologist with a focus on urban wildlife. My students and I are investigating why some species are able to persist and even thrive in anthropogenic environments and what role cognition may play in their ability to do so. Our current focus is on urban carnivores, specifically raccoons, skunks, and coyotes.
