Research Interests

My interests are in the development, application, and evaluation of methods in quantitative ecology. Current research focuses on several areas of capture-recapture statistical methodology, the conceptual development of adaptive resource management and its application to decision problems, and population dynamics of sandhill cranes, albatross, sea turtles, and manatees.

Teaching Interests

I teach courses in population analysis and demographic estimation, and wildlife management science.
