Researcher biography

Brad is a postdoctoral research fellow studying the conservation and population ecology of migratory shorebirds of the East Asian-Australasian flyway as part of the Fuller Lab (www.fullerlab.org). Brad is investigating causes of spatiotemporal heterogeneity in shorebird abundance and trends in the Great Sandy Strait and across Australia, and will use this information to develop management strategies for shorebirds and their habitats both domestically and abroad. Prior to joining the Fuller lab, Brad completed his PhD at the University of Guelph and MSc at Acadia University, where he studied the migration and population ecology of North American songbirds using individual-borne tracking devices and long-term demography studies.
