To date, the broad themes in my research have been wetland and waterfowl ecology, wildlife health, and environmental science. Specifically, I am interested in the relationships between avian life-history attributes and environmental variables. At UAF, I am studying habitat changes on the Arctic Coastal Plain and how they will affect the forage base for breeding shorebirds.

Thus far, my research has focused on understanding the functional implications of >25 years of Arctic plant community change in response to climate, succession, altered drainage, elevated nutrient levels, and/or herbivory. Here at UAF, I look forward to assisting in the advancement of the DVM-DOS-TEM climate model for tundra regions and beyond...

I am studying the response of arctic and sub-arctic ecosystems to changing fire regimes. How does fire affect plants and soil, and in turn the animals and people who depend on them? I primarily use ecosystem modeling as a tool to address this question.
