Research Interests

My research interests are in population and landscape ecology, with an emphasis on using quantitative methods to understand the dynamics of animal populations.  My current projects focus on investigating the effects of climate and other environmental factors on the demographics of migratory songbirds.  This work will allow us to assess the viability of local populations and provide recommendations for future management priorities.

Grant now works with the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute.
