Area of Interest

My current research focuses on applying machine learning techniques to model global-scale patterns of biodiversity and species distributions. I am also interested in birth-death processes for population dynamics, niche modeling with animal movement data, and point-process models for metacommunity analysis. In general, I’m interested in developing models that unify multiple traditional ecological processes. Before coming to Yale, I completed my PhD in computer science at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, where my research focused on novel demography models for populations of unmarked individuals.
