I am an ecologist who uses field-based data and quantitative approaches to investigate how ecological processes generate and maintain species diversity and connectivity across spatial and temporal scales. I address questions of applied conservation concern by characterizing population responses to a changing landscape and climate using approaches derived from landscape ecology, population genetics, spatial statistics, and GIS/remote sensing. While much of my research has focused on amphibians and associated freshwater ecosystems, I have experience with a range of taxonomic groups including ungulates, carnivores, and migratory birds. My current and future research program emphasizes: (1) the influence of climate and land use on ecological patterns and population processes; (2) characterization of diversity across spatiotemporal scales; and (3) the generation of practice-relevant insights to inform conservation and management planning.
I received my PhD in Ecology in 2017 at the University of Wyoming with Dr. Melanie Murphy in the Landscape Genetics & Spatial Ecology Lab in the Department of Ecosystem Science & Management.
