My research interests focus on animal
behavior and the interaction between
individuals. I have studied flying
squirrels and red-cockaded
woodpeckers in Georgia, ducks and
their nest predators in North Dakota,
and grouse and their nest predators
in Utah. I am looking to continue a
similar vein of research in South
Carolina - starting this summer.
