Assistant Research Professor
Department: Flathead Lake Biological Station
University System: University of Montana -
Though much of my work falls broadly in the fields of landscape and conservation genetics, first and foremost I consider myself a computer scientist. My computer science training and mindset have greatly helped me to provide unique insight and perspective on multidisciplinary research projects aimed at developing tools for applied conservation management. There is great untapped potential for further integrating computer science into conservation biology; from developing web-based tools to bioinformatic tools to database management to writing software programs to simulate key ecological and evolutionary processes, the potential and need are great.
