Curriculum Vitae

Our group seeks to understand the population dynamics and community interactions of large mammals throughout the world. Currently, we work on large herbivores and carnivores in western North America and Scandinavia. We investigate how chronic and epidemic disease shape population processes; we study the role of predation and weather in controlling animal abundance and harvest by people; and we work to reveal how the structure of food webs, the physical environment, and climate shape fundamental the structure and function of ecosystems. In all of our work, we use models of ecological process to gain insight from data.
