Ph.D. Wildlife and Fisheries Science, University of Arizona 2006
M.S. Biological Conservation, California State University-Sacramento 2001
B.S. Biological Science, Colorado State University 1997
My research interests are primarily in wildlife-habitat relationships, population ecology, and the influence of management practices on native wildlife species. I am interested in using a rigorous scientific approach to address applied questions related to wildlife conservation and management.
