Personal profile

Research areas

My research focuses on the conservation of threatened species. This includes developing methods to leverage sparse demographic data to guide more effective conservation decisions. For example, I am interested in exploring how data from captive populations can fill knowledge gaps for threatened species to support in-situ and ex-situ management. I also work on topics such as the international wildlife trade, conservation planning and decision making, and comparative evolutionary demography.
