My current research focuses in three areas: (1) recovery of the endangered Great Lakes Piping Plover population, all within the context of management of coastal shore ecosystems; (2) biology and management of Double-crested Cormorants in North America especially in relation to the cormorant-fishery conflict; and (3) colonial waterbird population dynamics and conservation in the Great Lakes and Asia.
