Research interest:

Behavioral Ecology

I am interested in animal behavior and population biology.  Current research in my lab focuses on small mammal species on Drew’s campus and at the Great Swamp Watershed Association’s Conservation Management Area, investigating the impact of white-tailed deer on the small mammal community as well as the responses of wild mammals to natural disaster and disease.  My previous research focused on primates in both the Peruvian Amazon and the rainforests of Uganda, where I studied ecological factors influencing patterns of group-living and social behavior, as well as primate communication.
