My postdoctoral research is focused on developing robust quantitative approaches for estimating trends in species' distributions and demographic parameters. I am working with several long-term data sets from the Illinois Department of Natural Resources to evaluate trends in several furbearing mammals including raccoon, coyote, red fox, gray fox, bobcat, skunk, and opossum. We are also using these data to examine inter-specific interactions and landscape effects on species at multiple spatial scales. I am also collaborating with The Orianne Society (www.oriannesociety.org) and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Society to develop a range-wide habitat and connectivity model for the federally threatened eastern indigo snake.
