Biographical Info

I am currently Assistant Unit Leader of the New Mexico Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit housed at New Mexico State University and I hold graduate faculty appointments in the Department of Biology and the Department of Fish, Wildlife, and Conservation Ecology.  My research interests are primarily in wildlife-habitat relationships, population ecology, and the influence of management practices on native wildlife species. I am interested in using a rigorous scientific approach to address both basic and applied questions related to wildlife ecology, conservation and management. In general, my research interests focus on understanding the effects of environmental heterogeneity on habitat selection, resource use, movements and the landscape-level distribution of mammals and birds.
