No project is too big or too small! I've worked across universities, government agencies, and non-government organizations in multiple countries around the world on a variety of species within wildlife and fisheries. I can focus solely on data analysis of already collected data or assist through the whole process from project planning, grant writing, data collection, analysis, all the way to publication.
Below is an example of some services that I offer, but I am also open to other projects - please reach our if you would be interested in working together!
Frequentist and Bayesian approaches to population modeling
- Capture-recapture modeling
- Occupancy modeling
- Distance sampling
- N-mixture models for estimating abundance
- Population viability analyses
- Matrix models
- Home range analysis
I have experience analyzing data from a variety of data collection methods including camera traps (arboreal and terrestrial), line transects surveys, ranger-based monitoring data, species follow or GPS data, live-trapping data, among others.
I primarily conduct analyses using R and ArcGIS, but also frequently use MARK, PRESENCE, and DISTANCE or their associated R packages.
Project Planning/Survey Design:
What methodology is best for collecting data on this species? How many camera traps are needed? Where should transects be located across the landscape? Over what length of time should data be collected?
Results can be presented as reports or scientific peer-reviewed publications. I can also assist with preparing and editing manuscripts for submission or grant writing for new projects.
