Areas of Academic Interest
My background is in ecology and animal behaviour (Ph.D. in Biopsychology Memorial University of Newfoundland; MSc. in Zoology, North Dakota State University; BSc. in Biology, University of Minnesota). I use this training to research issues around the ecology and management of avian wildlife, and the environmental management of extractive industries (oil and gas).
I have two main areas of research: environmental management of oil and gas extraction; and the ecology, conservation and management of avian wildlife.
