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.
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.
I presented a paper on ‘A novel framework for analyzing interactions between individuals: a case study using brown hyenas in northern Botswana’ at the International Statistical Ecology Conference. The conference was held July 1-4 on the campus of SupAgro in Montpellier, France.
