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.

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.
