About

Broadly, I am interested in understanding how human activities and land use affect wildlife abundance, movement, and gene flow. I am especially interested in how these effects influence human-wildlife interactions in non-protected areas, where land management tradeoffs between biodiversity conservation and land development can have cascading effects on both wildlife and human communities. I am trained in the field of landscape genetics, in both public health and applied conservation settings, and am interestined in pursuing a career in applied conservation research.
