Areas of Interests: My research specialty is Integrated Resource and Environmental Management (IREM) with a focus on the human dimensions of wildlife management. My particular focus on the human dimensions of wildlife management is especially relevant in Newfoundland and Labrador as provincial wildlife managers are faced with a number of contentious management issues which demand the formulation and effective application of integrated management responses. Some of the most prominent of these issues include, but are certainly not limited to, significant declines in caribou (Rangifer tarandus) populations in both the Newfoundland and Labrador portions of the province, several hundred vehicle – moose (Alces alces) collisions annually, the impact of hyper-abundant moose on native vegetation and the resulting cull of moose in Gros Morne and Terra Nova National Parks, and the range expansion and impacts of the eastern coyote (Canis latrans).
Specifically, my doctoral research is focused on exploring trends toward integrative approaches in wildlife management using caribou management in insular Newfoundland as a case study of such trends.

Areas of Interests: I am an agricultural and forestry economist who studies contemporary resource issues. I incorporate a number of different economic methods into my research program and I frequently engage in interdisciplinary collaboration. Several of my recent research papers focus on forest recreation and tourism, energy pricing, soil conservation and nutrient management, community sense of place, and ecosystem service valuation.
I am also pleased to be a part of the newly established Boreal Ecosystem Research Initiative (BERI) here at the Memorial University-Grenfell Campus.
