Urban Wildlife Postdoctoral Researcher, Colorado State University

My knowledge and expertise lie at the nexus of conservation biology, quantitative ecology, and environmental policy. I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at the Urban Wildlife Institute at the Lincoln Park Zoo. I am broadly interested in the drivers of global land use changes and how they impact wildlife populations and communities. In a rapidly urbanizing world, cities are often overlooked as important components to conserving biological diversity. I work to understand how urban environments – both the physical and social environment – influence animal populations and communities, and how we can further incorporate this information into future urban planning to help conserve biological diversity in cities.
