New project on analyzing animal interactions using GPS data

August 25th, 2014 · No Comments

I just received a three year grant to support research on developing a framework for analyzing dynamic interactions between animals using GPS data (NSF #1424920). I’m looking for a graduate student (preferably doctoral) to work on the project starting fall 2015. Student should have a GIScience and/or ecology background and be very comfortable with spatial analysis and modeling. Must have¬†very strong R skills and preferably some python programming experience as well.


If you are a potential graduate student interested in working on this project, please see general information about our graduate program here and more specific information about working with me here.

I was recently invited to serve as the Progress Report editor for Progress in Physical Geography.  This will entail commissioning short (5000 words max) papers that cover new developments in an area related to some aspect of geomorphology, climatology, biogeography & landscape ecology, or human-environment interaction.
