Conservation Data Scientist

Mike EvansAreas of Expertise: Quantitative data analysis, spatial ecology, and wildlife conservation 

Mike works with a variety of biological, and administrative data to improve the implementation of the Endangered Species Act.  His analyses seek to identify patterns in funding and permitting, and integrate spatial data to understand how land use decisions are affecting endangered species.  Beyond assessing current patterns, Mike is working to expand the integration of ecological and conservation science into ESA implementation strategies, to help facilitate species recovery.  Additionally, he is interested in providing interactive and dynamic apps and infographics that organize and display ESA data.  These tools will make it easier to understand how the ESA is working, and can help engage the public in endangered species conservation.

Mike earned a Ph.D. in Natural Resources from the University of Connecticut.  He received his B.A. from Oberlin College an M.S. from University at Buffalo in Ecology, Evolution & Behavior.
