More about my research
My Alaska Human Dimensions of Wildlife Lab tackles complex (and often contentious) wildlife issues using an interdisciplinary systems approach that considers interactions among ecological, biophysical, social, and economic factors. The AHDW lab uses a diversity of tools to address human-wildlife problems. These include, but are not limited to: community-based participatory research (e.g., citizen science), unmanned aircraft systems (i.e., drones), human survey research (lots of interviews), soundscape ecology approaches, camera trapping of both humans and wildlife, remote sensing and GIS, statistical and climate modeling, and more traditional wildlife management approaches (radio collars, DNA sampling).
