Research Interests:

I am interested in movement, dispersal and connectivity, specifically how large-scale biological patterns can be explained by an understanding of how and why organisms use space at a variety of spatial and temporal scales. My work involves developing biologically realistic statistical models for observational data collected at all levels of organization – typically using hierarchical models. My research balances methodological development with a strong focus on the application of these tools to biological systems to solve real-world problems.
