Department: Land Use Change Lab
My research interests cover a wide range of methodologies (interviews, econometric analysis, spatial conservation planning) with the underlying goal of building out practical toolkits for conserving wildlife species in multi-use landscapes. Currently, I study how ungulate (hoofed mammal) migrations in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem affect human wellbeing. I received a BA in Geography from the University of Texas and a Master’s degree from the Yale School of the Environment. When not in school, I lead hike and bike trips with Backroads and craft ways to justify doing fieldwork from horseback.
