In general I am most interested in the application of ecological and conservation principles to species and ecosystems that are at risk. I am also broadly interested in conservation management and population dynamics. My current research focus is on the breeding ecology and conservation of the eastern Painted Bunting (Passerina ciris
) through a capture-recapture study on Bald Head Island, NC.
