As a comparative physiologist and ecologist, I am driven by applied wildlife conservation questions and their real-world applications. I am most interested in the resource requirements and physiological constraints of activity in large carnivores, primarily terrestrial apex predators. I work on interdisciplinary research addressing how anthropogenic factors affect carnivore movement ecology, foraging success, population dynamics, and community composition at local and regional scales. I utilize novel technologies to explore the influence of terrain, prey abundance, and human-induced
disturbance on wild carnivores and have worked in Botswana, Costa Rica, New Zealand, Kenya, Alaska, and Antarctica.
