About Me

I'm a forensic wildlife biologist who conducts research on wildlife trafficking. I develop methods for identifying wildlife found in the illegal trade to species, and sometimes to their geographic origins. 

My recent work on pangolins combined genomic and spatial methods to map wild populations. I used those genetic maps to determine where internationally trafficked scales originated, and network analysis to identify the routes those scales take to market. My dissertation research focused on mapping the ranges of endangered lemurs in northwestern Madagascar.
