My research centers around animal movement and landscape use dynamics. Through GPS tracking and computer modeling, I assess how animals utilize the landscape and how that landscape use is altered with with fragmentation. We then use individual-based models to understand how landscapes will be changed in the future under differing fragmentation scenarios. I earned a B.S. in geology at the College of Charleston and a Masters Degree at The University of California, Santa Barbara. I am currently a Ph.D. candidate at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN, finishing in June 2018.
