Prospective graduate students: Please email me with a CV and a brief statement of research interests if you are interested in working with me. Be aware that the research focus of the lab is on using theoretical and computational approaches to address ecological issues; students who wish to pursue research requiring large amounts of field or lab work would be better off applying elsewhere.

Prospective undergraduate students: I encourage students looking to gain experience in ecological modeling to contact me. I'm also happy to discuss bird-related projects.


Ph.D. - Cambridge University, UK

I use mathematical and computational models to address pressing applied problems in population ecology and conservation.
