Biography

I am a quantitative ecologist working at the Oregon Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit as a Postdoctoral Research Associate. I am broadly interested in how animals respond to environmental heterogeneity, and how this leads to variation in the distribution and abundance of species at multiple scales. Since humans play a primary role in shaping environments, my work often explicitly considers how human and natural systems interact and is generally applied with a strong focus on natural resource conservation and management.
