Advisors: Dr. Guillaume Bastille-Rousseau

Research Interest:

My research will assess the distribution of semi-aquatic mammals in southern Illinois. In addition to estimating the occupancy of native semi-aquatic mammals, my study will compare various methods of detecting nutria (Myocastor coypus) to better address their current population status in southern Illinois. The goal of this project is to inform management decisions and aid in reducing the spread of an invasive species.
