The Aubry Lab: Population Ecology in a Changing World 
My approach to science, which combines field and theoretical investigations, addresses vertebrate responses to environmental change. The three primary themes of my research include:

  1. Quantifying the impacts of climate change on the demography, ecology, and micro-evolution of wild populations;
  2. Isolating the demographic and physiological processes that mediate variation in individual responses to environmental change and how those scale up to affect populations and communities;
  3. Understanding and predicting how wild populations respond to management actions (e.g. harvest) and conservation practices. 
I apply this research to a wealth of ecosystems (coastal, temperate, mountain, alpine and polar) and taxa (mainly birds and mammals). Research in the lab calls for the analyses of longitudinal data and methodologies that stem from demography, population ecology, and life history evolution theory.

Prospective Students:
I am always looking for outstanding and motivated students interested in vertebrate responses to environmental change. Whether you are interested in the management of harvested species, the conservation of endangered species, or a theoretical outlook on the evolution of life histories across the tree of life, the Aubry lab is the lab for you!
