Landscape ecologist and environmental scientist focusing on synergies between renewable energy and the environment.


I am a landscape ecologist and environmental scientist interested in developing novel environmental solutions for our local and global energy challenges.  I am interested in research in the following areas:

  • terrestrial/landscape ecology and geospatial modeling;
  • application of geospatial methods to environmental systems analysis;
  • impact evaluations of energy development to aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems, communities, and sensitive species.
