I am a PhD student in Ecology, Evolution, and Behavior at Boise State University. I am advised by Dr. Neil Carter in the Human-Environment Systems Research Group. Prior to this, I studied conservation GIS as an Environmental Sciences and Policy graduate student at Clark University and was advised by Dr. Florencia Sangermano.

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.
