I am a conservation biologist with a deep interest in understanding how people affect wildlife in landscapes. I use genetic tools to infer how living things interact with natural and human-influenced landscapes. My research has led me into studying questions like “What happens to wildlife genetic patterns when habitat changes?” My dissertation research was on the impacts of roads on landscape genetic patterns in kangaroo rats and other wildlife, but I have learned to use a wide variety of ecological and genetic tools in landscape genetics, landscape ecology, phylogeography, community ecology, community phylogenetics, invasive species biology. This diversity of approaches allows us to better understand how to deal with obstacles to wildlife conservation.
