Advisor: Volker Radeloff and Anna Pidgeon
Committee: Murray Clayton, David Mladenoff, Adena Rissman
Interest Area: My research interests lie in the fields of conservation planning, conservation biology, landscape and community ecology, and remote sensing. I am specifically interested in how we can be more strategic and effective in our conservation efforts by learning from past initiatives, predicting impacts of future climate and land use change on wildlife and natural communities, improving remote-sensing derived landcover data, and translating this knowledge into practical tools for land managers, policy makers, and conservation practitioners.

Committee:  
Interest Area: My thesis research will investigate relative abundances of mink, river otter, muskrat and beaver in the far north of Wisconsin and near west of Minnesota. We will be documenting presence with ground, river and aerial surveys in both heavily modified and pristine estuary systems. My overarching interests include endangered species conservation in the context of mammal communities and their environment, and managing for stressors including modified and reduced habitat, introduced species, and the altered community structure that may result. I am particularly fond of the mesocarnivore guild.
