I am an ecologist broadly interested in methods that support landscape-scale monitoring and management of prioritized natural resources, particularly on public lands. Previously, I have developed methodology for acoustic monitoring of wildlife, including modeling approaches, hardware, and software tools. My current research focuses on developing a national perspective for climate change refugia conservation within the U.S. Department of the Interior.
