Title: Postdoctoral Associate
I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate in Dr. Ray Iglay's lab working with Dr. Kristine Evans and Dr. Jared Elmore to improve animal monitoring using small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (drones). My research interests center on spatial ecology, animal movement, and simulation modeling, particularly in birds and mammals. I am a native of southern California and earned my BS and MS degrees from Brigham Young University in Utah. I studied seed dispersal by two species of toucans in Costa Rica for my dissertation, earning a PhD at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. A previous postdoc brought me to Purdue University to study the spatial ecology of bobcats (Lynx rufus) in Indiana. I love traveling, birding, and experiencing new cultures and landscapes.
