Assistant Professor of Quantitative Wildlife Sciences
I study the dynamics of wildlife populations and communities, with a particular interest in facilitation, trophic interactions, and indirect effects. Research in the Prugh lab uses a combination of intensive fieldwork, modeling techniques, meta-analyses, and interdisciplinary approaches to study the response of wildlife communities to global change. Current research focuses on carnivore communities in Alaska and arid grasslands in California.
