In our lab we study how human change of the environment influences wildlife, with a focus on birds. We are also developing conservation solutions that apply new technologies to reduce human-wildlife conflict.

Undergraduates and prospective graduate (MS) students, if you are interested in working on these types of questions please email email me.
