My research focuses on understanding individual- to community-level responses to human-induced and natural disturbance in terrestrial ecosystems and at the aquatic/terrestrial interface. The taxonomic and geographic reach of our research is broad, ranging from large carnivore work in the Romania, to vernal pool amphibians in New England, and multi-species conservation in British Columbia, but united by a common theme: inferring animal-habitat relationships through the lens of multiple stressors and predicting their resilience to novel patterns of disturbance. 

Amphibian and Reptile Ecology and Conservation

We study how human actions affect animal-habitat relationships at the individual (behavior, physiology), population (space use, extinction), and species and community-levels (range shifts, turnover). Ultimately, we strive to integrate these levels of biological organization with climate and land use change models into resilient spatial solutions through systematic conservation planning.
