Personal profile

Research interests

I am an ecologist interested in the application of quantitative methods to understand how animals interact with their environment, and how this influences individual behaviour, success, and population abundance. 

Under this umbrella, I am interested in the application of movement and demographic models to understand movement behaviour of animals at individual and population scales, and at local to broad spatial scales. I use automated radio-telemetry as a tool to track the movements of small birds. Understanding where animals move throughout the annual life cycle is a first step towards determining where and how populations might be limited. 

I am also interested in the application of quantitative methods to improve our understanding of temporal and spatial variation in population abundance, including whether violation of sampling and statistical assumptions bias population estimates. The goal of this research is to ensure species conservation assessments are evidence based, appropriate, and scientifically defensible.
