Jeffrey Bromaghin, Ph.D.

My research broadly encompasses the development and application of advanced models and statistical methods to improve our understanding of ecological processes that influence the behavior, reproduction, and survival of individual animals, and how individual-animal outcomes ultimately scale upward to shape the dynamics and demographics of entire populations and communities through time.
