Land use impacts on species

I work to develop techniques for assessing species populations and distributions by incorporating remotely sensed data on land use, citizen science observations, and population modeling. One example of this is work I co-led to assess the distribution and population of cheetah in Southern Africa. I am currently working to understand how differences in habitat utilization influence vertebrate responses to land use conversions for agricultural production.
