Ph.D. Student

Currently, I am studying the effects of environmental change on Alaskan moose and their habitat using a combination of existing and developed remotely sensed products. In large part, my interest in pursuing this area of study stems from its inherent interdisciplinary nature, where skills in remote sensing, movement ecology, and outreach are essential.
