Research Interests: 

In collaboration with Richard Holmes (Dartmouth College), Nicholas Rodenhouse (Wellesley College), Allan Strong (Univ. of Vermont), and Michael Webster (Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology), I am studying how weather, in combination with habitat structure and other biotic factors, influences the behavior and demography of forest birds. Such information is key to assessing the potential local effects of climate change on migratory bird populations, and ultimately to predicting how these populations and the biological communities of which they are a part will respond to future environmental change.
