Research Interests

I have been involved with a variety of research, but my primary focus is on wildlife response to global change, particularly in the context of climate change and energy development. My research aims to apply current statistical methodologies to assess mechanisms responsible for shifts in population demography to better inform conservation efforts. 

Courses Taught

My position at Texas Tech is strictly research; however, I taught Wildlife Ecology and Management at North Carolina State University.
