My main research focus is applied ecological research and environmental impact assessment. My recent activities have focused on developing and applying alternative sampling designs, such as reference condition approaches, to detect ecological impairment, and sampling protocols capable of identifying environmental impacts of human activities. A component of my research also focuses on ecological restoration of northern streams and mitigation measures to reduce effects of human activities on amphibian communities.
