Research Interests: 

My research focuses on understanding the influences of anthropogenic threats on wildlife populations and identifying effective and efficient management strategies for wildlife restoration and conservation, including the use of structured decision making. My focus has primarily been on aquatic wildlife; reptiles, amphibians and fishes; but recently I have been exploring the amazing lives of freshwater mussels.
