My research focuses on resource selection of terrestrial mammals. I am currently a PhD candidate at Memorial University of Newfoundland in the Wildlife Evolutionary Ecology Lab working with Eric Vander Wal.
I am broadly interested in animal resource selection and movement, with specific focus on how scale affects these processes. I am also interested in how changing climate and habitat availability alters animal movement, selection and fitness.
