"A rare bird or flower need remain no rarer than the people willing to venture their skill at building it a habitat."

Aldo Leopold 1933

 I completed my Ph.D. in Environmental Biology and Ecology in the Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Alberta in 2005. I then spent 1.5 years working on a Post-Doc with Colorado State University, where I was addressing a variety of sagebrush-steppe and avian conservation issues. I was recently elevated to a full research scientist at the Natural Resource Ecology Laboratory at CSU, and Associate Professor in the Department of Ecosystem Science and Sustainability.  I am continuing my research on sagebrush ecosystems in collaboration with a diverse team of scientists and stakeholders. Please see my Research Page and Publications Page for more about my past and current research.
