I am interested in the application of remote sensing and geospatial analysis tools to support locally appropriate conservation and management decisions. My work has spanned a variety of topics, including modeling wind-driven fire spread, assessing habitat connectivity for endangered species, analyzing global tropical deforestation, and quantifying linkages between coupled social-ecological systems.
I am currently an Assistant Research Professor / Water Science Fellow, with Arizona State University and The Nature Conservancy. I completed my PhD with Jennifer Swenson in Duke University's Terrestrial Ecology and Landscape Analysis Lab. I completed my Postdoc as a NatureNet Science Fellow with ASU's Center for Biodiversity Outcomes and TNC's North Carolina Water Program. My current research investigates solutions for water quality and flooding problems in agricultural and urbanizing watersheds under extreme events.
