I am a conservation GIS researcher who uses geospatial analysis, remote sensing, and ecology for environmental projects that work towards a future where humans live sustainably with and conserve the natural environment. I studied conservation GIS as an Environmental Sciences and Policy graduate student at Clark University and was advised by Dr. Florencia Sangermano. I am currently a PhD student guided by Dr. Marguerite Madden at the Center for Geospatial Research at the University of Georgia.

General Research Interests

My interests lie in biodiversity conservation, land-use change, and the use of remote sensing to complement conservation and ecological field work. A key goal of my research is to better comprehend land-use changes and anthropogenic disturbances to wildlife to make more informed and well-rounded conservation decisions. I do this using an interdisciplinary approach, drawing from the fields of ecology, geography, particularly remote sensing, and anthropology.
