My work through Dendrolytics supports local habitat and species through words, numbers, and maps based on the best available science. I've worked with multiple partners in support and leadership roles on conservation ecology research including eDNA, spatial analysis, and policy analysis projects.
My research in urban systems examines how we develop and landscape land in cities, and how these actions impact other organisms like birds. I want to learn how to better support local species and humans by changing how we manage these areas. I'm especially interested in private property and the choices developers, property owners, and renters make.
Please contact me if you'd like to collaborate!
I am also a founder and director of Research and Design for Integrated Ecology, a non-profit dedicated to working with private and public sector clients, including local governments, communities, corporations, private land owners, universities, and other non-profit organizations to help integrate ecology into their planning, design, and development processes.
I received my PhD from the Urban Design and Planning program at University of Washington, and am part of the Urban Ecology Research Laboratory. I received my Masters from the School of Marine and Environmental Affairs at UW and a BS from the Department of Natural Resources at Cornell University (CALS).
