I study the influence of climate and landscape on species distributions, metapopulation dynamics, and functional connectivity in wildlife species in contemporary and future timescales. I seek to apply this information towards mitigation scenarios for focal species such as American pika and swift fox in the context of climate change and species restoration.
Please see my website for further details regarding research projects I am currently involved with.
