In My Own Words

I focus on medical geography and ecology at the human-wildlife interface, particularly where it pertains to disease ecology, conservation biology, and wildlife management. I use methods from landscape ecology (GIS, remote sensing, geospatial science), quantitative ecology, and epidemiology to analyze landscape change, health outcomes, and the impact of anthropogenic changes, including climate change.
