"Well I was raised up beneath the shade of a Georgia pine
And that's home you know
With sweet tea, pecan pie and homemade wine
Where the peaches grow" Chicken Fried, Zac Brown Band

JEFFREY BROWN

PhD Candidate

Jeff is interested in the effectiveness and function of protected areas. He studies birds and arthropods to investigate how various factors (size, levels of light pollution, adjacent land use) impact the species that utilize protected areas. His research goal is to shape best practices for the creation and maintenance of conservation land.

RAFAEL VALENTIN

PhD Candidate

Rafael's research is focused on understanding invasion dynamics at large biogeographic and small local scales. He addresses the influence of transport and release on post-establishment evolution; the lowering of detection thresholds for agricultural insect pests using eDNA; and the global invasion pathways of a invasive insects.

Mike Allen

PhD Candidate

Mike studies the inter-connectedness between agricultural practices, ecology, and conservation. His research integrates economic, ecological, and climate data to better understand the population dynamics of grassland birds and looks for leverage points for their conservation in agro-ecosystems. He is also generally interested in avian ecology and evolution.
