I am a research scientist in the Wildlife and Landscape Science Directorate of Environment and Climate Change Canada. I aim to improve the usefulness, reliability, transparency, and availability of tools for projecting cumulative effects of disturbance on wildlife and vegetation. Examples include development and assessment of tools for projecting resource roads, assessing the connectivity of protected areas, and projecting impacts of disturbance on boreal caribou demography and habitat use. The work also includes integration of these components into models of landscape change and wildlife impacts, assessing utility for decision support, identifying important deficits in available data and tools, looking for ways to address these deficits, and building our collective capacity for decision-relevant ecological forecasting.
