Research Focus

  • Research uses 54 years of bald eagle productivity and contaminant data to determine localized, watershed-level, as well as population level, effects caused by organochlorines and heavy metals
  • Determine sink/ source effects and morphometric differences in nestlings between these spatial regions

I joined the Department of Environmental Science and Technology as Professor and Chair in May 2011. I was previously at Clemson University for 12 years as a faculty member in wildlife ecology and ecotoxicology. I specialize in the study of how stressors affect wildlife populations including environmental contaminants effects, the effects of human activities, foraging ecology, and habitat relationships. My primary species that I study is the bald eagle, but have studied other species in North America, Europe, Asia, and Africa.
