I am a biogeographer and doctoral candidate at the University of Nevada, Reno, where I am expanding my college teaching, spatial ecological modeling, GIS, UAS, and remote sensing skillsets. My current research focuses on distribution modeling and applied habitat mapping for threatened birds, as well as UAS applications in wildlife conservation. I am broadly interested in applied biogeographic research that engages undergraduate students and community members in the scientific process and collaborative conservation initiatives. Furthermore, I am an enthusiastic instructor with dedicated training in inclusive, experiential, student-centered learning in higher education.

NICARAGUA CAMERA TRAPPING PHOTOS
All photos are sourced from the 2014 summer camera season during my Masters research. Cameras extend from the Ulwa village of Karawala to the Kriol town of Pearl Lagoon. All locations fall within the Southern Caribbean Autonomous Region. Cameras in 2014 captured images of all five Nicaraguan felids as well as the Giant Anteater and Baird’s Tapir.
