Project Title: Dispersal and dynamic occupancy models for the spread of white nose syndrome in bats
As a NIMBioS postdoctoral fellow, Tom Ingersoll (Ph.D. Environmental Science, Policy and Management, UC Berkeley, 2010) developed dispersal and dynamic models for the spread of white nose syndrome in bats. Upon completing his fellowship at NIMBioS, Dr. Ingersoll accepted a position as Computational Biologist with the Department of Defense.
