Applied Spatial Wildlife Ecology


Welcome. I’m a research ecologist and professional asker of questions. My work is motivated by a sense of community, curiosity, and open-mindedness. I’m interested in the nature of the patterns of animal behaviors and movements. By combining natural history, quantitative analyses, and modeling, I attempt to define the interactions between humans, animals, and the environment. I enjoy using these methods to find applied solutions to specific wildlife management issues.
