INTERESTS

Field work in northern Minnesota exposed me to the applications of GIS in conservation biology. Since then I have become deeply interested in the applications of GIS and remote sensing in landscape ecology, conservation efforts, and movement/spatial ecology.

Outside of the GIS world, I am very enthusiastic about literature, bicycle touring, backcountry camping/canoeing, analog synthesizers, and DIY community art space engagement.
