IMG_0966My research interests lie in determining the factors that influence fundamental topics in ecology, including animal behaviour, habitat selection, movement, and predator-prey dynamics. I am interested in the impact that the temporal and spatial scale of analysis has on our inferences and how individuals vary within a population in their responses. These key interests developed during my undergraduate degree at the University of Guelph where I completed a test of the influence of prey and predator density on functional response in a zooplankton microcosm at two time intervals. For my Masters degree at the University of Alberta I am investigating individual variation in habitat selection and movement at multiple scales. Specifically, I am exploring elk winter range behaviour, focusing on the influence of human disturbance.
