The overall goal of my research is to develop an understanding of the spatio-temporal processes that affect the distribution and abundance of organisms. I am interested in how animals alter their habitat selection and movement paths in response to heterogeneity in resources and risk. My research covers a range of spatial and temporal scales but is focused primarily on how large, mammalian herbivores respond to changing landscapes.
