Post Doctoral Scholars
Patrick Barks was an Eyes High Postdoctoral fellow in our lab (2016-2017) working on biodiversity informatics projects. He turned us all into Bayesians, and may very well be doing the same at his current post doc appointment in Denmark.
Sarah Johnson was our pollinator field coordinator for two years (Summers 2015 and 2016). She helped us design and implement our beneficial insects field program in its first two years. She is now Lead Biologist with Wildlife Preservation Canada, where she works on bumble bees.
Sam Doctolero wrote some fabulous C++ code for us (Summer 2016), which is now fully incorporated into our GRAINSCAPE package for R. This has sped up analyses of landscape connectivity by orders of magnitude. Sam now works as a software engineer in the private sector.
Feng Tan (Winter 2016) worked on our monarch butterfly remote sensing project, creating a temporal sequence of land cover for agroecosystems in various parts of Canada.
Stuart Coutts (Winter 2016) joined us as a database admin intern from SAIT, and helped develop two database applications (one web-based) to support research activities.
Scott Bell (Summers 2015, 2016) helped us establish our volunteered smartphone location history program. He now works in urban planning in Vancouver.
