Research Interests

elk_graphicMy interests center on the development and application of GIS based landscape conservation tools to facilitate efficient and pro-active planning. Typical datasets include species habitat models, future projections of landuse/landcover, and potential threats to habitat. A large focus of my work is in presenting complex datasets in an intuitive and functional interface whereby the full utility of landscape level GIS conservation tools become accessible by non-GIS professionals.
