I am a senior landscape ecologist with The Nature Conservancy's, Central Science. I attempt to bring vigor from diverse fields such as landscape ecology, spatial statistics, remote sensing and applied mathematics to answer practical conservation questions. I hold Affiliate Associate Professor status at University of Wyoming and have 80 publications in peer-reviewed journals (H index = 25).
My research is focused on spatial statistics in ecological applications, species distribution modeling, climate change, landscape genetics, Bayesian statistics, Lidar and spectral remote sensing and gradient modeling. I have ridden horses for 35 years and have played guitar in several swing and bluegrass bands.
