III. Research

A. Area of Expertise
Application and integration of computer and ecological sciences to more efficiently model and represent natural phenomena as digital data structures. Primarily focused on (1) developing novel methods that synergistically document, manage, and process large datasets; (2) improve existing models and workflows to decrease processing time or infrastructure requirements; (3) designing and implementing complex data models to improve knowledge and information extraction.
