The good bits: I’m native to the foothills of Arkansas’ Ozark Mountains. These things excite me: herping, hiking, swimming & canoeing, coding & data visualization, my wife–Kristin, my dog–Ollie, cooking, and brewing kombucha. The serious bits: I am an ecologist, with training in herpetology and landscape ecology, and I have an interest in research at the interface between conservation, ecology theory, and mathematical modeling. My research is aimed at developing cutting-edge quantitative solutions to model complex data about the ecology of reptiles and amphibians. I primarily work with invasive species and species of conservation concern to determine how landscape attributes affect the dynamics and connectivity of populations, while providing management-relevant recommendations to effectively manage species.
