University of Georgia
Currently, I am a PhD student at the University of Georgia in Athens, GA, USA. Prior to that I completed my bachelor's degree in Biology at Kalamazoo College, Kalamazoo, MI and a Masters in Zoology at Michigan State University, East Lansing, MI.
My dissertation research is focused on building statistical models that integrate what we know about how a biological system works with the management actions available and the constraints, including cost and time, that accompany those actions. Working as a team with researchers and managers we can develop better models for conservation that allow us to predict the efficacy of specific management alternatives and evaluate those actions after they have been implemented.
