My research focuses on the effects of land-use change on biodiversity, where I use bats as models to assess this. I have previously conducted research exploring the effects of wildfires on bats in Southern California and have most recently investigated the habitat selection of the critically endangered Florida bonneted bat (Eumops floridanus). As part of my doctoral studies, I am interested in how tropical bats respond to deforestation, fragmentation and agricultural intensification. I aspire to conduct research that will inform effective, place-based conservation planning that promotes biodiversity within human-modified landscapes while supporting communities and livelihoods.
