I am a PhD candidate in the Odum School of Ecology at the University of Georgia, advised by Drs. Richard Hall and Sonia Altizer. I am broadly interested in spatial ecology, particularly in the effects of landscape changes on wildlife behavior. I enjoy working with mathematical models and using statistical models to analyze large datasets.
One of the great parts about being a modeler in ecology is that I get work with data and concepts from lots of different fields and systems, so I am always learning new techniques and more natural history. I have studied whooping cranes, brown bears, ungulates, ibis, and bats, plus some of their parasites and pathogens. For more details on my research, please see the Research page.
Collaboration is one of my favorite parts of doing scientific research, so if you're interested in working together or just talking about a project, please get in touch!
