B.A. Yale University
My interests are broadly at the intersect of ecological forecasting, socioecological resilience, and decision theory. I am interested in combining empirical data, mathematical models, and statistical approaches to make optimal decisions about the management of complex systems with consideration of observational uncertainty and nonlinear responses (i.e. regime shifts). I am co-advised by Carl Boettiger.
Prior to joining the Brashares lab, I worked at the Woods Hole Research Center where I researched socioeconomic and biophysical drivers of land use change and optimization of conservation design in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Costa Rica, and Brazil. I received my bachelor’s degree in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology and African Studies from Yale University.
