Research Interests

My research explores ecological questions associated with both spatial and temporal changes occurring across the landscape and their effects on species of concern. More specifically, I am interested in how forest management focused on mitigating and adapting to climate change affects avian species at regional scales. Currently, I am developing Bayesian hierarchical models to assess the impacts of land cover and climate on avian abundance.
