My main research focus is on hunting as a management tool of white-tailed deer and other ungulates. Specifically I am interested in addressing some of the shortcomings of traditional hunting management by applying new understandings of predator-prey interactions. By structuring hunting practices to better resemble the action of natural predators it may be possible to increase hunting’s effectiveness at maintaining white-tailed deer, and other ungulates, at population densities that are both ecologically and culturally sustainable.

Prior to starting my doctorate at Trent University, I completed my M.Sc. at Carleton University in the Geomatics and Landscape Ecology Research Laboratory. My research there looked into the effects of roads on white-tailed deer abundance. Click here for a copy of my published manuscript.
