I am an Assistant Professor of Biology at Athens State University. My research focuses on understanding the spatial ecology of species, with implications for conservation and management. I use a combination of empirical research and simulation modeling to investigate questions related to dispersal ecology, spatially-explicit population dynamics, conservation biology, and species invasions.
