Office: 323G Murie Building

Research Interests:
My research interests are in the movement ecology of large mammals and my current work is focused on the spatial ecology of caribou of the Western Arctic Herd here in Alaska. I am specifically working toward 1) using GPS data to detect calving events, 2) investigating annual patterns at the individual and herd levels in calving area utilization, 3) identifying the influence of abiotic factors on fall migration, and 4) investigating the effects of space use on individual fitness.

Research Interests:
I am interested in how climate change and intraguild dynamics influence behavior and habitat selection in arctic carnivores. Specifically, I'm working to understand how wolverines use snow as a structural feature of their habitat on Alaska's North Slope.
