My research focus is on vertebrates that are difficult to study due to low population density or cryptic habits. This includes not only endangered species, but also common species such as bats and snakes. I am interested in activity patterns, particularly habitat use and spatial ecology such as movement and migration patterns.  I am also particularly interested in how amphibian and reptile populations are influenced by invasive species of plants and animals.
