I received my Bachelors in Biology from the University of Mary, and my Masters in Biology from Kansas State University. My thesis work included investigations of the landscape dynamics of sylvatic plague in black-tailed prairie dogs throughout the Great Plains. In particular we examined the temporal and spatial patterns of the spread of plague among prairie dog colonies and mechanisms that may be driving these patterns.
I am particularly interested in the landscape level dynamics of vector-borne zoonotic diseases in social animals and how diseases move through populations, especially when multiple hosts and/or vectors are players in a disease cycle. I am also interested in the use of GIS and spatial modeling as tools to investigate these dynamics.
My hobbies include camping, fishing, music, and cooking.
