Chris Sutherland works at the interface of applied, spatial and quantitative ecology. Much of his focus is on the development and application of ecologically realistic statistical models for observational data regularly collected in monitoring studies with the dual purposes of testing ecological theory and improved wildlife management. Originally from Scotland, UK, Chris worked for three years as a postdoctoral research associate at Cornell University before recently joining the faculty in the Department of Environmental Conservation at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst.
