As an ecologist it is my goal to collaborate across disciplines to understand the responses of native wildlife to land-use and climate change, especially in urban areas, in order to provide strategies for adaptation and mitigation. I use a combination of on-the-ground field studies, modeling and quantitative tools, and spatial analyses using GIS in my work.
