My work focuses on the conversion of scientific knowledge into conservation practice.  I am the team lead for Data Basin (, an innovate web-tool that provides access to data about complex ecological, political, and economic systems. Users can upload, download, visualize, integrate, save, share, and critique information without the usual constraints of file formats and steep learning curves.

The Data Basin Climate Center provides access to spatial data, tools, and people working on climate change.


The Conservation Biology Institute (CBI) provides scientific expertise to support the conservation and recovery of biological diversity in its natural state through applied research, education, planning, and community service. We utilize GIS and remote sensing data to conduct assessments and planning in support of conservation projects globally.
