I am an ecologist who studies how natural and human disturbances affect wildlife and the benefits that people get from nature. I work as a conservation scientist at the Yellowstone to Yukon (Y2Y) Conservation Initiative.
My research is acutely applied, including land-use planning, community-engaged work, ecosystem restoration, environment-related law and policy, and how animals respond to human activities. I'm a big fan of science communication and outreach. Over the last 15 years, I've worked in research, conservation, consulting, and teaching across East Africa, western North America, and Central America.
