Hello! I’m a scientist, writer, and public speaker. In my day job as a professor at the University of Georgia I run a lab in the Odum School of Ecology that tackles problems in biodiversity science, theoretical biology, and the ecology of emerging infectious diseases. I have a passion for applying data science to better understand the natural world and our place in it. More information about our research is available on the lab website. To inquire about consulting or speaking engagements please contact me here.
