My main research interests include the effect of vegetation composition and structure on wildlife, succession, wetland ecology, habitat management, ecosystem restoration, and ecological modeling. I am currently working as the project lead for the Eastern Crew of the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative funded Great Lakes Coastal Wetland Monitoring project.
