Welcome!

Originally from Buffalo, NY (or, as I refer to it, The Great City!), I now live in the Berkshires of western Massachusetts where I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Williams College.

My research interests lie at the intersection of mathematics and ecology: I develop and analyze mathematical models that describe population-level ecological processes. My research spans several topics in ecology including invasive insect management, disease ecology (both in humans and wildlife), and coral reef conservation. Generally, my work explores two underlying questions: (1) what drives population (or disease) persistence?, and (2) what are the outcomes of management strategies? My research is very interdisciplinary and I work with individuals in various fields including physics, statistics, economics, and ecology.

Recent coverage: coral reef conservation, mathematical ecology research
