I am a classically trained mammalogist, primarily focusing in field ecology. I am interested in questions dealing with the effects of anthropogenic habitat disturbance on patterns of biodiversity and health of population in these habitats. My interests range from landscape ecology to biogeography. I try to incorporate statistical modeling, geographic information systems (GIS), morphometrics, and phylogenetics to field and museum data, with the aim to improve our understanding of various dimensions of biodiversity primarily in the tropics.
I am starting as Assistant Professor at DePaul University and a Research Associate at The Field Museum of Natural History.
