My current research interests are focused on the population and community dynamics small mammals, particularly rodents and shrews. My goals are to elucidate how variation in habitat and resources affect small mammal community assemblege, distribution, and abundance. In particular, I am interested in studying how the invasive hemlock woolly adelgid effects small mammal community assemblege in Harvard Forest, Petersham, MA.
