The focus of my Ph.D. thesis is the effects of urban sprawl on forest biodiversity. More specifically, I am interested in how carabid beetle and breeding bird abundance and species richness respond to the trade-off between housing density and sprawl area.  

I have also investigated the historical effects of residential developments and the relative effects of forested, agricultural and urban landscapes on pond-breeding anuran communities.
