Ph.D. Topic: Amphibian Monitoring & Management in the NPS National Capitol Region: Synthesizing Data to Develop Network-Scale Management Strategies.

Overall, I am focused on solving local and regional environmental problems to maintain basic ecosystem health for the relying ecological and human communities. More specifically, I am interested in the interplay of landscape ecology and quantitative ecology in the use and development of conservation science. For my Ph.D. research, I am collaborating with researchers at the USGS to develop management strategies at multiple spatial scales to maintain amphibian communities within the National Capitol Region of the National Park Service through the use of structured-decision making and hierarchical modeling.
