Biography

Dr. DiRenzo joined the MA Cooperative Research Unit in Nov 2020, where she is the Assistant Unit Leader of Wildlife and adjunct faculty in the department of Environmental Conservation at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. Dr. DiRenzo received her PhD at the University of Maryland, College Park, and her Bachelor’s degree from the University of Connecticut, Storrs. Her research emphasizes disease dynamics, community and population ecology, and species conservation. To mimic natural hierarchical systems, she develops hierarchical Bayesian models, and she uses data collected over space and time to separate ecological and observational processes to answer ecological questions.

Dr. DiRenzo's research program focuses on unifying ecological and evolutionary theory to address fundamental questions in ecology using field, experimental, and quantitative approaches.

She enjoys teaching graduate courses related to quantitative ecology, disease ecology, and population/community ecology.
