Employment

Aug 2013 – Present            Research Associate III (Research Scientist) at Colorado State University and USGS contractor
Conducting research to inform management and advance understanding of feral horse and burro ecology and behavior; PI or Co-PI on several projects. Lead data collection of samples for a bison study correlating body condition and climate variables in the Great Sand Dunes National Park, Colorado. Manage field crew and logistics.

May – Aug 2013                  Research Associate – Colorado State University
Short-term position with Prof. Kevin Crooks and Dr. Chris Burdett to create and manage a database, and use R to conduct phylogenetic analyses of global mammal species to assess their conservation risk based on habitat suitability models and identification of fragmentation hotspots in GIS. Georeferenced global feral swine locations from GBIF.

May 2010 – May 2013       Postdoctoral Research Associate – University of Colorado at Boulder
Conducted research on elevational distribution and abundance of small mammals and their food resources in the mountains of Colorado to examine the effect of biodiversity parameters and climate change. Led field teams to survey small mammals in habitats from desert to alpine tundra, while conducting vegetation surveys and sampling for arthropods, followed by data analyses (including literature reviews. Created protocols based on the project design. Created an Access database to store data; used ArcGIS and various statistical programs (JMP, CAPTURE) to analyze population sizes and distributions. Museum related work such as georeferencing locations, preparing and measuring fluid and osteological specimens. Managed the lab and field crew. Collaborated with and wrote reports for local and state agencies.

Nov 2006 – May 2010        Chargée de Mission/Project Manager – Association pour le cheval de Przewalski: TAKH, France.
Implemented and directed the community development and rangeland management aspects of an evidence-based integrated conservation project in western Mongolia, involving working closely with partners (WWF-Mongolia and Khar Us Nuur National Park) and local stakeholders. Acquired funding for, designed, and implemented research on wildlife, including surveys of vegetation, wildlife inventories (from trapping small mammals to censusing gazelles), and bird surveys. Collaborated with stakeholders and partners to develop an adaptive management plan to mitigate overgrazing and create alternative income opportunities through training and education. Organized meetings and training of the community group and women’s group. Developed strategic plan for the next 4 year period. Managed budget (€2 million between 2010 and 2013), multi-national staff, and logistics. Research on Przewalski’s horses: analyzed demographic, behavioral and genetic data from a 10-year dataset on Przewalski’s horse using Access, JMP, and StatExact. Re-organized the Access database. Organized the international ‘Workshop to discuss the future of the takhi in Mongolia’ (2008).

Jun 2005 – Sep 2006           Project Manager – Zoological Society of London’s Steppe Forward Programme, Mongolia.
Directed a Darwin Initiative (UK DEFRA) funded project and built on it: gained further funding, completed agreed outputs and developed new projects, including organization of a workshop to develop an IUCN Regional Red List of Mongolian mammals and herptiles. Maintained and created collaborations with government, local and international universities, and NGOs (Wildlife Conservation Society, Development Steppes) to leverage funds, research projects, and conduct outreach meetings and training courses. Organized and taught on ecological and IUCN Red List workshops for environmental professionals and stakeholders; organized, developed materials for, and taught ecological field courses for Mongolian undergraduates in remote parts of Mongolia. Produced a website, books, and a scientific journal. Oversaw community project in the south Gobi. Developed and managed budgets for multiple concurrent projects; managed multi-national staff and volunteers.

Jan 2003 – Jun 2005           Wildlife Biologist, Senior – Mount Graham Red Squirrel Monitoring Project, University of Arizona.
Designed and headed research projects, including radio telemetry and direct behavioral observations. Live-trapping of small mammals. Used Access, GIS, RANGES, LOAS, and statistical programs to analyze population movement and range data. Hired and supervised field personnel.

Jan – Jun 1997                     Intern Red Wolf Reintroduction Project, Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge, North Carolina.
Acquired radio telemetry, carnivore handling, scat analysis, and veterinary skills. Conducted public outreach.
