Brad's research examines factors that influence fitness of animal populations at multiple scales - from genes to landscapes. The impetus for most of his research emerges from important conservation issues; however, he also endeavors to answer general ecological questions to improve concepts and theory in ecology and evolution, with a focus on questions examining Habitat Selection, Landscape Genetics, Population Trends, and Social Behavior. He teaches courses in wildlife ecology and research methods.
The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land granted to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is centralized within our Indigenous Initiatives Office.
