Taylor Ganz, Ph.D.

Research Scientist, University of Washington

I am a wildlife ecologist in the Prugh Lab at the School of Environmental and Forest Sciences at the University of Washington. I study how deer and elk populations across Northern Washington are influenced by predators (especially recolonizing wolves), and large-scale landscape change driven by humans. I am particularly interested in the ecology of predator-prey interactions within the context of the American West.
