In the long history of humankind (and animal kind, too) those who learned to collaborate and improvise most effectively have prevailed.
I greatly value the research connections I have made. Below are some of the collaborators and institutes that I have worked with.
Chancellor's Professor of Mathematics
NIMBioS Associate Direction of Education and Outreach
I took Suzanne's course on optimal control theory. We mentored a group of undergraduate researchers, participated in the MASAMU Advanced Study Institute for five years, and continue to work closely on many projects. She serves as a primary advisor and mentor.
Associate Professor of Mathematics
I took Dr. Collin's course on mathematical ecology. I also learned a great deal about teaching from Chuck and completed the mathematics department's teaching certificate program that he directs. We work closely on many projects. He serves as a primary advisor and mentor.
National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)
Northeast Fisheries Science Center
Supervisory Fishery Biologist
NOAA Northeast Fisheries Science Center
I am working with Chris on a modeling project to analyze the ability of NOAAs bottom trawl survey to assess the status of various fish populations via stratified random sampling as they respond to warming waters on the eastern continental shelf.
National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis
I took Lou's advanced mathematical biology course and he is serving as one of my references.
NIMBioS Affiliated Faculty
I learned GIS and statistical modeling techniques from Agricola. We collaborated on a statistical model analyzing risk factors for the Ebola virus disease.
Associate Director of Postdoctoral Affairs
I participated in Paul's conservation biology seminar. He served on my doctoral committee.
Southern Africa Mathematical Sciences Association
I met Farai at the MASAMU Advanced Study Institute. We have collaborated on several projects.
SAMSA President 2000-2006
I met Dr. Lungu at the MASAMU Advanced Study Institute.We have collaborated on several projects.
I met Moatlhodi at the MASAMU Advanced Study Institute. We have collaborated on several projects.
MASAMU Advanced Study Institute
(based at Auburn University)
Professor of Mathematics and Associate Provost at Auburn University
Dr. Jenda directs the MASAMU Advanced Study Institute (MASI). I have attended the MASI five times at various locations throughout southern Africa. Several of my collaborative projects were begun at the MASI.
Assistant Professor at the University of Tennessee
I met Orou at the MASAMU Advanced Study Institute. We are collaborating on projects related to Ebola, an African Mahogany system, and cheetah. He conducts field work on the Mahogany system we are studying.
Assistant Professor of Mathematics at Scripps College
I met Christina at the MASAMU Advanced Study Institute. We have collaborated on a number of projects.
Massachusetts Green High Performance Computing Center
Joint Venture Between Several MA Universities
The Mass Green High Performance Computing Center provides computing support for researchers in Massachusetts. They assisted me in running an agent-based model on their high performance clusters.
National Park Service
Supervisory Wildlife Biologist
Great Smoky Mountains National Park
Mr. Stiver has many jobs in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, including directing the feral hog control progam. We have collaborated on three projects related to feral hogs in the Park. The data Bill supplied related to mast, control records and GIS maps have been instrumental in our work. Bill is a trusted collaborator and I look forward to working with him on future projects
University of Georgia
Director of the Center for Geospatial Research
Dr. Madden and I have collaborated on projects related to feral hogs in Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The detailed vegetation data she obtained via lidar was very important in both of our projects.
