I am a biologist who studies species declines: the mechanisms that cause them and solutions that reduce future declines. I have no strict allegiance to any taxonomic group or region. Rather, my goal is to address pressing conservation concerns so that effective conservation strategies can be devised.
- Identifying mechanisms of species declines
- Researching strategies to reduce future species declines
I use a mixture of field surveys, lab and field experiments, and modeling to answer questions.
