Thomas's research focuses on using demographic data to better understand the complex relationships among environmental conditions, climate, anthropogenic actions, and population trends of wild organisms. He is currently a postdoc with Dr. Michael Schaub at the Swiss Ornithological Institute, where he investigate the complex ecological interactions driving passerine population trajectories in Europe and waterbird population trajectories in North America. He's been incredibly fortunate to work with exceptional people from Texas and Alaska to the Swiss Alps, and hopes to continue his career working to benefit wildlife populations with inspiring people in beautiful places.
