Our research focuses on developing and applying quantitative methods to address questions in conservation of biodiversity. The lab is not taxon-specific, as the methods we use are aimed at improving conservation efforts for a variety of species.
We are currently interested in methods and approaches for measuring species recovery, assessing the impact of conservation measures, and predicting the vulnerability of species to global climate change and other threats. For more information, see our Research page.
