Thanks for visiting! On this site you’ll find information about me and my research.
In my research, I apply insights from collective behaviour to better understand the interaction between social dynamics, landscape structure, and the spread of disease. This integration is increasingly important for conservation and ecosystem management given the global and pervasive scale of anthropomorphic landscape and climate alternations.
I am particularly interested in collective movement, studying social animal groups ranging from primates (e.g., vervet monkeys and baboons), to ungulates (e.g., gazelles), and cetaceans (e.g., beluga). Recent and rapid developments in spatial analysis infrastructure, e.g., remote sensing, geographical information systems (GIS), and global positioning systems (GPS), have transformed the study of wildlife movement. I develop and make use of this infrastructure to better understand the development and drivers behind collective behaviour.
For my postdoctoral research in the Barrett-Henzi lab, I work on questions in movement ecology and modeling of socio-spatial dynamics.
