My research centers on understanding the evolutionary, behavioral and physiological mechanisms underpinning the ability of populations to persist in the face of significant environmental change. My work contributes to our understanding of basic science; however, I strongly believe in the value of effectively translating scientific research into practical, evidence-based directives to equip stakeholders with appropriate decision-support tools to advance conservation and sustainability objectives.
