Research

My research is motivated by curiosity about the natural world, interests in conservation and a passion for ideas. I grew up exploring the forests and lakes of Nova Scotia, and my ecological fieldwork has since taken me around the world, with research in Central and South America, Africa, England and arctic and temperate Canada. Many of my research ideas are developed through mentoring students and postdoctoral fellows.
