I am a senior landscape ecologist and biometrician with The Nature Conservancy's, Global Lands Science team. I attempt to bring vigor from diverse fields such as landscape ecology, spatial statistics, remote sensing and applied mathematics to answer practical conservation questions. I am a visiting Professor at University of Wyoming with ~110 publications in peer-reviewed journals (H index = 35, i10-index = 46). I teach graduate courses in spatial statistics, quantitative landscape ecology and nonparametric statistics as well as the occasional workshop. I have ridden horses for 45+ years and played guitar in several swing and bluegrass bands.
