Research Interests

As a researcher, I use integrative approaches in molecular ecology and evolutionary biology to examine how individuals and populations respond to environmental change. I use a variety of tools in genetics, species distribution modeling, and ecological and behavioral experiments to understand the factors that structure and limit species ranges. My research is conducted within a strong theoretical framework with the ultimate goal of informing conservation and management strategies.
