Adia Sovie, Ph.D.

I am a wildlife ecologist interested in global change and species relationships.  I combine quantitative ecology, field experiments, and remote sensed data to answer questions about how changing landscapes alter biodiversity.  My research ranges from modeling how invasive Burmese pythons in the Everglades alter mammal communities to how owl in the Grand Canyon respond to climate change. With the ECL I am looking at how recolonizing mammals alter trophic interactions in Singapore and developing novel uses for camera trapping data

I received my MSc & Ph.D. from The University of Florida's Department of Wildlife Ecology and Conservation.  

If our interests overlap and you are interested in collaborating or you have questions, please reach out!
