study the spatial patterns and genetic diversity of wildlife populations

I am a PhD student with the New York Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit, at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY, USA. 

I study the spatial and genetic patterns of black bear populations in New York to help wildlife management refine their objectives and strategies.  

I seek to understand the relationship between patterns, process, and scale,  by combining data ranging  from the individual to landscape level .
