Biography

I work at the interface of animal behavior, population biology, and community ecology to address basic and applied questions in animal ecology and conservation. Two themes define my current research: (1) how predators structure food webs and modify ecosystem function, and (2) how populations at the edge of a species range respond to environmental change. I study large mammals in ecosystems that range from the montane slopes of northern Utah to the polar deserts of the High Arctic. Much of my research centers on a long-term, collaborative study of wolves and ungulates in Yellowstone National Park.
