Research Interests

I am  interested in the effects of climate change on boreal and arctic species. Using the combination of field data and population modeling to quantify consequences of environmental stressors on wild populations and to provide management recommendations for fostering adaptation, my Ph.D. research investigated the impacts of decreased duration of snow cover on snowshoe hares and other species that become white in the winter and their adaptation to camouflage mismatch against snowless backgrounds.
