research overview

  • My leadership experience includes serving as the top-level scientific authority responsible for the advocacy of transformative research utilizing the continental scale National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON); directing a large, complex, interdisciplinary environmental studies program; and integrating research, teaching, and community engagement activities across campus to enhance student experiences and increase visibility of interdisciplinary environment and sustainability programs. My interdisciplinary scholarship and teaching focus on human-environment interactions in urban and wild landscapes. My research emphasizes the impacts of habitat loss, fragmentation, and restoration on the persistence of native species, communities, and ecosystems, and is particularly relevant to the interface between environmental science, policy and planning regarding endangered species and habitat protection.
