Expertise: the effects of an animal’s behaviour, movement, and dispersal on population dynamics and ecological interactions; quantitative ecology; research spans terrestrial and marine ecology
Expertise: how global climate change affects arctic vegetation composition and nutrient cycling; plant community and ecosystem ecology
Expertise: human dimensions of wildlife management; large mammal ecology; modeling interactions among humans, wildlife, and rapidly changing social, economic, and ecological conditions; and how citizen science and studies of human-wildlife interactions within social-ecological systems can help facilitate healthy and sustainable ecosystems and communities
Expertise: behavioral neuroscience with a focus on how the brain regulates adaptive and non-adaptive behaviors; a spontaneous and predictable mouse model of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is used to understand the brain mechanisms that control the expression of OCD; the mouse model is also used for the testing and development of new drugs to treat OCD in people and OCD-like behaviors in pets, livestock, and zoo animals.…
Expertise: virus-host cell interaction, emerging viral pathogens
PhD – Osaka University
Deputy Director of the Virology Unit of the Alaska State Public Health Laboratory
CNSM Department of Biology & Wildlife
Institute of Arctic Biology

Expertise: the mitigation of metabolic stress in clinical conditions such as obesity, diabetes, sarcopenia and alcohol abuse
Expertise: population and evolutionary ecology of plant-insect interactions; the impact of patchy or fragmented habitat structure on population level processes; how detailed examination of individual behavior can be used to scale up to explanations of population level processes.…
Expertise: coevolutionary interactions, particularly host-parasite interactions. My research team uses a combination of mathematical modeling and molecular analysis in both field and laboratory settings to address how species interactions influence life history trait evolution, such as dispersal and virulence.
