I am interested in wildlife ecology, species interactions, and biodiversity conservation in managed forests. My dissertation research focuses on the ecology and conservation of keystone species interactions in the temperate rainforests of southern Chile. The rapid expansion of exotic timber plantations in this region during the last four decades has prompted concerns about their impacts on biodiversity and ecosystem functioning. I am working to understand the cascading effects of plantations on keystone interactions and the ecological communities they are a part of. An important aspect of this work will be the development of workable management strategies for conserving biodiversity in plantation-dominated landscapes.
