Research Interests

Broadly, I am interested in wildlife diseases, wildlife population dynamics, and their interactions.  My work in the Luis Lab focuses on building a Bayesian capture-recapture model to analyze a small mammal dataset from the southwestern United States. Using the deer mouse-Sin Nombre orthohantavirus system, I will assess how various environmental factors influence deer mouse survival and abundance.

Professional Experience

Wildlife Biologist, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, January 2017 - present


I enjoy photography - of the wildlife variety, visiting remote locales, fly-fishing, geeking out on taxonomy, hiking with my goofy dog, and adventuring with my life hostage/partner in crime, Matt.
