My research focuses on understanding and improving natural resources management and policy by assessing stakeholder's preferences, support, and actions for management programs and issues. I conduct applied, qualitative research using scientific surveys to analyze stakeholder's values, beliefs, attitudes and behavioral intentions. Past research has focused on: acceptability of wildlife management practices; restoration of wildlife populations; wildlife harvest estimates through hunting and/or trapping; and economic expenditures related to hunting.
