The movement ecology of migratory animals, especially extreme endurance migrant birds, fascinates me.  Alaska migratory shorebirds have links to all hemispheres, requiring international collaborations to implement effective conservations efforts. 

Through an emeritus position at the Alaska Science Center my research is focused on: 1) collaborations with an international suite of colleagues to assess the movement ecology of extreme endurance migrant shorebirds and identify the global-scale conservation issues facing their populations, and 2) releasing data to the public domain and publishing results associated with information collected during my five-decade-long tenure as a research biologist.
