Research Interests: My dissertation will aim to elucidate the effects of changing hydrological conditions, predation pressure, and hunting regulations on white-tailed deer populations in south Florida. Broadly, my research interests include: landscape ecology, conservation planning, resource selection patterns, movement ecology, disturbance ecology, predator-prey dynamics, and adaptive management.
