I have mentored several graduate and undergraduate students during my time at UNR. I have not yet served as a K-12 mentor.


Broadly, I’m interested in coupling ecological data (e.g., census records, mark-recapture data, remote sensing) with simulation models, statistics and machine learning to support evidence-based conservation and wildlife management.
