Bill’s research addresses contemporary issues in applied wildlife ecology with a unified goal of elucidating the effects of spatial and temporal resource heterogeneity on wildlife populations.  He is currently developing an agent-based model to examine effects of alternative management and climate scenarios on waterfowl populations in the mid-continent region.

After serving as a NE CASC Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Bill went to the USGS Alaska Science Center in Anchorage.
