Our research focuses on ecology at the human-wildlife interface, particularly where it pertains to disease ecology, conservation biology, and wildlife management.
We use methods from landscape ecology (GIS, remote sensing, spatial analyses), quantitative ecology, and epidemiology to analyze landscape change, health outcomes, and the impact of anthropogenic changes, including climate change.
We use dynamic and statistical models to explore questions in population, community and disease ecology, to augment field-based research.
