Areas of Research

Human-Animal Relationships, Conservation and Geospatial Science
My research is diverse and focuses on carnivore conservation, specifically wild canids (coyotes and wolves, but also fox, painted dogs). I have a focus on welfare with respect to research methods and practice and interest in improving co-existence. All research programs have engaged Geospatial analysis as some component. My research is non-invasive, mixed methods (qualitative and quantitative) and addresses emergent issues in human-animal relationships. Full profiles available on my lab website
