Research interests

My research interests focus on remote sensing, land use, and wildlife conservation. In the past, I have studied the density and habitat modeling of wild species using remote sensing techniques and applied my findings to re-introduction projects, habitat management, community involvement, and human-wildlife conflict mitigation. Currently, I am studying land use land cover in the Caucasus mountains, mapping changes since the mid-20th century, and evaluating the impact on habitats of wild species. I am also a Teaching Assistant for Introduction to Remote Sensing course at UW-Madison.
