Research Interest:

Vast herds of Elk traverse the varied terrain of Colorado in their seasonal migrations, with each herd's collective movement decisions determined by a myriad of factors.  Given the increasingly fragmented nature of Anthropocene landscapes, successful conservation decision-making regarding migratory fauna requires a detailed movement ecology perspective.  Analyses of habitat and space use afforded by multi-year tracking of different herds provides location-specific information vital to effective preservation of Elk populations and their large-scale phenological movements.
