Research Interests:

My research is currently focused in two areas: the behavioural ecology of families; and fisheries and fish population dynamics. My work has both empirical and theoretical dimensions. I have conducted long-term field studies on the behaviour and ecology of marsh-nesting blackbirds as model systems for the study of family dynamics. I am interested in the resolution of conflict and cooperation among family members, and how finite resources are shared. I am also beginning new projects on the fish and fisheries of Manitoba. This work will look at the potential for the commercial exploitation of non-traditional species, and whether new bioproducts can be developed from the freshwater fish of Manitoba.

I am currently accepting applications from prospective graduate students or post-docs with full or partial funding.
