I came to the University of Alberta after working on various field projects, including projects on bobcats, pumas, jaguars, and ocelots. I have focused primarily on population ecology using non-invasive survey methods like camera trapping, DNA collection, and tracking. I completed my MSc in 2018 on methods of density estimation using a Canada lynx population in southwestern Yukon. I collected four data sets and analyzed with several statistical methods to estimate density. I hope that this work will inform studies of population density and abundance and be useful for scientific, management, and conservation purposes. In the future I look forward to applying these methods in different systems to inform species conservation efforts.
