Welcome to the Conservation Biology Lab at Longwood University. I teach conservation biology, ecology and related courses in the Department of Biological & Environmental Sciences at Longwood University. My current research program focuses on ecology of crayfish, fish and birds, and the application of this information to conservation issues. My research students, collaborators and I use field surveys, laboratory and field experiments, mathematical modeling, and citizen science data to tackle our research questions.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or thoughts about my work.
