My research combines ecological science with ethics to promote compassionate approaches to conservation. I aim to develop, apply, and promote nonlethal and noninvasive strategies that enables the persistence of species without causing intentional suffering to individual wild animals. I collaborate with landholders to secure protection for wild animals from killing programs conducted for farming and conservation, and from commercial hunting. My ecological research explores how human-assisted redistribution of species promotes biodiversity, and how apex predators enable coexistence between native and introduced species.
