Research Interest

I am interested in studying the effects distantly related species have on one another. Specifically, my research is focused on the interspecific association of Odocoileus virginianus (white-tailed deer) and Meleagris gallopavo (eastern wild turkey). Both species share common dietary and environmental resources and are common across the landscape, as well as having a high economic value. My research aims to determine if there is an association between these species, what kind of association is or is not there and why. Other research interests are broad and include Urban Ecology, Wildlife Ecology, and Behavioral Ecology specifically within the class Mammalia. When not in the field or lab, I enjoy horseback riding, hiking with my dogs, and reading.
