My research group is focused on the development of methods for conserving populations. This generally involves two distinct but interrelated focal areas: quantitative population ecology and decision science. We’ve worked on a variety of taxa, including marine and terrestrial birds, marine and terrestrial mammals, reptiles, amphibians, and fish. Our focus is on applied science, with an emphasis on assisting managers of populations with decision making in the face of uncertainty, and complex and conflicting societal values. We work closely with managers in developing and executing research projects.
