Kevin Shoemaker

Associate Professor, Applied Population Ecology

Summary

Broadly, I'm interested in coupling ecological data (e.g., census records, mark-recapture data, remote sensing) with simulation models, statistics and machine learning to support evidence-based conservation and wildlife management.
